Make strong connections

Small class sizes, with student-teacher ratios of just 10:1, enable you to have meaningful discussions and build real bonds with your classmates and professors. You’ll engage throughout the week with peers in discussion board posts, vlogs, and other collaborative media.

Our faculty are dedicated to providing the support you need to succeed in the program. They're responsive to your questions and provide timely and rich feedback on assignments. Some faculty have regular office hours, while others will schedule a meeting at times that are convenient and workable for you.
