Featuring different styles of course delivery:  LIVE and ON-DEMAND formats offer something for different learning styles and schedules. The LIVE course is delivered on a specific day and time twice a week for a full semester.  The ON-DEMAND course follows the traditional semester calendar, but you complete the coursework with a group of peers with fixed deadlines during the semester. Each online course has a unique mix of custom designed instructional elements and fresh, original content which covers key concepts and develops critical thinking in the core fields in Liberal Arts.
