Insights from your fellow students will keep you constantly thinking and learning. Over the course of your degree, you’ll form relationships with fellow classmates that will last a lifetime.

Study on Your Schedule. In our online environment, there's no set time you must attend class. Each week, you’ll access a study module with lectures, readings and assignments. Then you’ll engage with your online learning community in faculty- and student-led discussions. You’ll "attend class" when it's convenient for you, whether it’s at 6 a.m. before you leave for work or at 10 p.m. after the kids have gone to bed.
