Two-Year Certificate Program Goes Online for Fall 2020

All Other Upcoming Sessions Planned for On Campus*

How the Fall 2020 Online Session will Work

For the safety and health of our students, faculty, and staff and in accordance with Rutgers' social distancing policies, the Fall 2020 session of our 2-Year Certificate Program will be conducted online.

The 10-week curriculum is the same as the on-campus course with as few changes as possible. Admission requirements for the online session also remain the same as for our in-person programs.

To allow for a flexible schedule, the online program will combine the following types of classes:

  • Live classes that require student participation (eg. public speaking presentations). Students must be present during these live sessions.
  • Live classes that encourage students to engage with instructors and each other. These classes will be recorded and available for the students who are unable to attend.
  • Prerecorded lectures that you can view at your own pace.

To accommodate students across all time zones, online classes will begin at 11am EST and we will schedule all live classes during the second and third periods of the day. Adaptations for international students will be made as required.

We anticipate bringing our online students to the classroom for in-person networking and hands-on training during their second 10-week session beginning in October of 2021.
