You are encouaraged to attend the face-to-face portions of the program but we recognize that many of our students will be employed in roles that require extensive travel. Credit is achieved by successful completion of assignments and, in some circumstances we've made it possible to complete the program solely through online elearning.
What will I learn at the meetings?
The meetings will have more of a professional conference feel and are a great time for students to meet and network with fellow students in the cohort. Edge Hill University instructors will also be attending to meet with students to review the previous term's curriculum, preview the upcoming term's curriculum, and provide individual student advising.
How will I learn in this program?
This cohort-based program is a hybrid offering: consisting mainly of online classes with one face-to-face meeting each term. The structure is modular and designed for busy professionals to complete at their own pace. The two-year program consists of six learning modules, a work-based project and a dissertation. The program is divided into nine-week terms which include eight weeks of online study with an Edge Hill instructor; followed by three days of face-to-face meetings in the United States.
Who will teach the program?
The courses taught in this program were developed by The Center for International Education at Edge Hill University and are taught by Edge Hill faculty.
