What is the course format?

All courses are offered online and consist of study guides, readings and videos, asynchronous discussion forums to which you post, assignments, and two to three zoom sessions with your instructor. You can study at the time and place that works best for you.  For most courses, the one-hour zoom sessions are the only course components that have a scheduled time, but recordings are usually made available on your course site after they are completed. The capstone courses (Final Project or Practicum) of your final year may have additional scheduled activities.

3 credit courses are offered in a 12-week format. There are additionally a few 1.5 credit courses held over 6-weeks.

The 12-week courses require a commitment of ~8-9 hours per week per course, over the 12 weeks. The 1.5-credit courses are similar in nature, and each require a commitment of ~8-9 hours per week over 6 weeks.
