This cohort-based program combines an on-site low-residency model with online coursework to create a unique hybrid graduate program. The residencies are offered at host international schools and occur once each semester, fall and spring, with a total of four throughout the program. Each non-residency course runs for one semester completely online, offered concurrently with one residency course in a hybrid format. Face-to-face instruction for hybrid courses occurs one weekend and several evenings each semester. This format allows students and instructors to reap the benefits of a face-to-face relationship while completing online course components.
