The 19-month leadership program is a great option for many adult students because it minimizes the amount of time you need to spend in a classroom and commuting to and from class while still requiring a strong commitment to your studies and motivation to be a self-directed learner.
The 19-month leadership program is accelerated and hybrid. This means that for most classes, you'll attend class on campus from 6-9:20 p.m. one night per week and complete the remainder of your coursework activities online. Most courses will be five weeks. You can expect to spend about 18-22 hours a week between in-class meetings, online expectations, and homework. The program runs continuously for a 19-month period, keeping you on track to your degree more quickly than a traditional college schedule.
