Schedule of Classes

HCDA courses take place over two weekends per semester (Saturday & Sunday), supplemented by weekly assignments and other related academic activities.  Each course’s specific semester schedule should be checked, as dates may vary. Students will have the choice of traditional classroom or flexible participation option to allow for distance learning and time independent lectures, to better fit individual schedules and reduce travel requirements.
