General education classes are scheduled early in the morning, throughout the day and most weekday evenings. We also offer full-semester, late start, and full credit 8 week classes taught by faculty members who are experts in their field. Classes are interactive and taught in various modes such as large and small lecture, online and hybrid classes that combine face-to-face with online instruction.
