By selecting one or more of these courses, students will immerse themselves in knowledge- and skill-developing environments that will expose them to real-world situations and experiences. Regardless of the course selected, students will have the opportunity to apply their learning and harness their skills in a variety of challenging and curiosity-building tasks.

The length and demands of each course are specifically designed to ensure that students will develop a sophisticated knowledge foundation while also providing opportunities for the application of skills to make their learning come to life.

Micro-courses and electives have an outcomes-based framework; however, they will not be delivered using only traditional teaching and learning methods. They are designed by the experts in the field to ensure that they replicate as close to the real-world experience as possible.
