Acadia’s program design is unique, and includes: a cohort model a sequenced degree curriculum, where courses are designed to build from one course to the next, culminating in a capstone experience a hybrid of virtual classroom, online modules, and individual/group instruction including face-to-face meetings with professors and advisers scheduling that is friendly to working professionals, including virtual classroom sessions and two week summer residency on campus (as opposed to usual 8 week requirements in other “four-summer” degree programs) rigor achieved through the hybrid design (not simply a collection of unconnected survey courses often found in other distance learning degree programs) combined with a 2-year timeline for completion There are 10 courses to be taken for the completion of the degree, and the courses are offered over a two year period.
