Classes are taught in a seminar style and are writing intensive. Class activities include simulations and discussions that draw from students' personal and professional backgrounds to achieve a broader understanding of the material. Each course builds on the next so students can maximize the impact of the learning.

Classes meet once a week for eight weeks, with two eight-week terms in each 16-week semester. Many of these classes will fill a student's need for general education or elective credits.
