How Our Online Sessions will Work

For the safety and health of our students, faculty, and staff and in accordance with Rutgers' social distancing policies, the Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 sessions of our 2-Year Certificate Program as well as our 2022 3-Week Preparatory Course will be conducted online.

The curriculum for all online programs is the same as our traditional on-campus courses with as few changes as possible.

To allow for a flexible schedule, the online programs 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 EDT 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.

Students who attend the Fall 2021 or Winter 2022 sessions of our 2-Year Certificate Program will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on training activities and field trips during their second 10-week session, which we plan to conduct on campus in Fall 2022 and Winter 2023 respectively - federal, state, and university safety regulations permitting.

Admission requirements for the 2-Year online sessions also remain the same as for our in-person program.
