Cohort Format of Programs — SGCS
Most programs in the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies use the accelerated, cohort model, in which an entering group of learners stays together for the entire program. Cohorts average 15 learners. Classes meet one evening per week for four hours. Some of the coursework, both in class and outside the classroom, is completed by learners working in collaborative learning teams.
NOTE: Programs in the School of Theology and Christian Ministry do not utilize the cohort model.
