Blended Courses - Philadelphia Center

Not sure if you’re ready to take a class entirely online? A blended class might be the perfect solution for you. This format offers the best of both worlds. You’ll still interact with classmates in person while you enjoy the freedom of studying where and when you want with online learning.

Students are responsible for communications software and internet service. There are both minimum and suggested requirements for computer setup. For more information, please visit our technology requirements. Each blended course requires additional hours of online instruction.

Enjoy the best of both worlds and take a blended class during Mod 2 this fall!
