What course delivery formats are available?

Courses are available on-site and online for Washington, DC Students, and courses are worth three graduate credits each.  The on-site format at the Ronald Reagan Building occurs in five all-day intensive sessions and typically have pre-reading and project work requirements during the intercession period between lecture periods (if split) or after a  week-long session.  These five days are usually split into 3-day/2-day sessions.

The online format follows a more traditional Fall/Spring I & II/Summer semester format, with opportunities for both synchronous and asynchronous learning.  Classes can meet regularly together online, or participation can occur via online discussions and periodic assessments of learning via tests, depending on the nature of the class and the professor.
