What makes us different?

  • NO TESTS. You will write papers, give presentations, and complete team projects, but we'll never ask you to regurgitate what you've read and memorized from a textbook.
  • NO TEXTBOOKS. You'll read and review web-based content hand-selected by faculty from primary sources and academic journals.
  • NO LECTURES. OK, our faculty talk but never for the whole hour. You'll experience lively, active dialogue and seminar-style classes.
