There are three types of courses offered – choose what meets your needs.
Three credit “hybrid” classes which combine an intense, in-person experience with four weeks of distance learning, with the instructor providing feedback and individual attention to every class member.
Each three-credit course can be taken for two credits by completing only the intensive week (no distance learning.)
One-credit “bridge” courses are offered on weekends. They are in-person.
The one-credit courses act as a bridge between subjects. They are in-person.
