The MSHA is designed as a blended-learning program. During on-campus sessions, students attend lectures, participate in seminars, and use the Department’s learning laboratory, computer facilities and library. Students have ample opportunity to interact with fellow classmates, faculty, and visiting scholars and practitioners. Organized class sessions are typically held during the day and are designed to facilitate effective and efficient learning. Evenings are reserved for study, group project work, informal interaction with fellow students, and social events. During each off-campus semester, students continue course work at their home/work site using a carefully planned array of distance learning technologies. The Program uses the internet as the primary mode of communication during off-campus periods. This technology allows students and faculty to communicate with one another asynchronously through personal computers equipped with Internet access.
