Immersion Courses

Low-Residency, Immersion Study Options

The Graduate Liberal Studies program's low-residency options go beyond evening courses in fall and spring to include day and evening classes in summer, and special five-day immersion courses, over five consecutive full days or multiple weekends. In these immersion courses, you perform the same amount of work and attend class for the same number of hours as a traditional course, for the same full three units of graduate credit.

Immersion courses are as academically rigorous as regular term course. You should be aware that the syllabus usually requires students to prepare for up to a month prior to the first class meeting and to complete assignments in the weeks following the course. Please click here for more information about immersion courses. Other low-residency options include hybrid courses, graduate tutorials, and synchronous online courses. Feel free to pursue any or all forms of study.
