There are ten courses totalling 30 credits. Two courses are face-to-face in San Diego, and eight are highly interactive, online courses with recently recorded instructor lectures and contributions by guest lecturers on cutting-edge industry trends. The two face-to-face courses are a week long immersion, one at the beginning of the program, one at the end.
Almost all course activities are asynchronous, meaning that you do not have to be online at any particular day/time to participate in the course. Some activities, such as role presentations, may require all students to participate at the same time. There are weekly assignments, including web exercises and discussion boards based on the weekly readings. You can access weekly lectures online.
