Education at the Speed of Life
The “real world” is not out there. It’s right here, right now. Our One Course At A Time curriculum allows you to learn the same way you live and work, with no gaps between classes and no far-off exams. When you take One Course At A Time over a three-and-a-half-week period, you’re able to delve deeply into each subject. You learn how to work to a deadline, manage your time, and get things done. And you’ll gain experiences you can’t get on a traditional semester plan—like taking on internships that feel like full-time jobs, doing real research, and building exceptionally strong relationships with your professors and classmates. At the end of four years you’ll realize that you’re ready for whatever comes next.
“One month, I can feel like a computer science major; the next, I can become a creative writing major. I get a chance to try everything, and to devote myself to it fully, without having to balance my time
