A note about summer semesters

Completing a graduate course in two weeks requires approximately 50-60 hours per week. You should plan to be available on campus or on-line for synchronous class meetings, independent work, small-group discussions, and individual conferences between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. for the two weeks that this course is running. There will be some flexibility for independent assignments during those hours, but the compressed nature of the courses require fast turn-around and precise sequencing, so students need to be prepared for a full-time commitment during this course.

All courses are offered in a hybrid format, combining on-campus sessions with on-line learning components. The on-campus sessions are Wednesdays, 4:30-7:30 p.m. on the dates listed below. See technology requirements.
