Level of study: Graduate
Number of courses: 12 (36 Credit Hours)
Duration: 2 Years – 12-week terms (4 per year)
Term begins on: October 4th, 2021
Mode of study: Online (Flexible with Hands-On Experience)
ECCU coursework is delivered through a 100% online degree program, providing the flexibility of time management whereby students can attend to coursework at any time of day/night or weekends (24×7). There is a structure to the week and term whereby attendance and submissions must meet predefined deadlines each week and weekly attendance and participation are mandatory. Synchronous scheduled class times are not utilized but adherence to discussion and homework weekly posting deadlines are.
The course utilizes traditional university terms (semesters of 12 weeks) and is structured accordingly. So the course delivery sits in a flexible middle ground between the structure of set class times and attendance and the open-ended system of self-paced independent study courses.
Each course is instructor-led by credentialed professors with industry experience with a maximum enrolment of 30 students. Guided discussion, interaction/engagement, assistance/support, and grading/feedback will be done with your professor weekly as the course proceeds.
Courses typically consist of a mixture of weekly threaded discussions, reading materials, iLabs (ECCU’s online virtual platform to practice), presentation support (PowerPoint and/or video), quizzes/exams, and/or research projects/papers.
