Macro (or Trimester) Courses


  • Certain selected macrocourses begin every January, May and September in our Live Virtual Classroom mode. You may also take macrocourses for academic credit using our Internal Online Independent Study mode at any time during the year.

  • Macrocourses can be taken for academic credit as described above, or audit no-credit in Live Virtual Classroom mode, or no-credit lite versions for lifelong learners who are not enrolled in a degree program.

  • Courses are open to BA, BA Completion, MA or PhD students. If you are enrolled at the MA and PhD level, you will be expected to provide deeper analysis on reflection tasks and for the Final Creative Assignment. Grading will be commensurate with those enhanced expectations.

  • Each course consists of between 12 and 15 weekly modules that provide a comprehensive overview of a particular subject.
