Distance Learning at MSPP
What is a Blended Course?
MSPP’s blended courses incorporate both online and on-campus study. Students take part in weekly online assignments, discussions, and collaborative projects with faculty members and classmates. Additionally, students are required to come to campus for one intensive weekend-in-residence (WIR) per course and other scheduled on-campus meetings. Given the frequency of the on-campus requirements, most programs recommend that students live within commuting distance of MSPP.
Who takes Blended Courses?
A blended course serves the needs of today’s graduate student. The on-campus component of the program helps students create close bonds with classmates and professors, and covers material that is best taught face-to-face. The distance element of the program provides greater flexibility, especially for students:
- Who are in the workforce and for whom retaining full-time or part-time employment is necessary or relevant to their graduate studies.
- With family obligations.
- Who wish to earn an income while in school.
- Who enjoy the flexibility of learning from home.
- Who are self-motivated and proactive learners.
- Who seek high levels of engagement with faculty and peers.
- Looking for in-depth, intensive learning and training opportunities
