2020 UPDATE: To adapt to this global pandemic, we will be offering all of our courses online for the first time in our 50-year history. This allows students much more flexibility with scheduling work/family life around school. In some courses there will still be dedicated ‘class-time’ where instructors teach live over web conference, while in other classes there will still be opportunities for field trips and other in-person activities. Overall, the programs will provide you with much more flexibility in scheduling. The learning environment will be the same as instructors will be as available just as before to have 1-on-1 student meetings should you need more support in your learning.
