  • A hybrid online and on-campus program exposes you to best practices across a spectrum of technologies. Real time classes meet via technology to provide collaborative interaction and direct access to faculty.  The mostly online format gives you flexibility to work around your busy schedule, and in-person workshops and meetings with advisors establish a network of support.
