Leadership Curriculum Overview

The coursework is more self-directed and less collaborative than cohort or other online classes. There are three (3) asynchronous seven (7) week classes in the certificate. Asynchronous classes entail students reading the text and doing assignments, completing discussion boards and possibly optional chats.

These classes are writing intensive and are intended for students who are familiar with online learning and can maintain their own schedule without regular lectures or meeting times to keep them on task.

Classes cannot be audited or taken for noncredit.
