Course Structure

Lectures

Classes begin with intensive lectures (up to five hours) led by experienced instructors. Through a mix of presentations and small-group discussions, students learn to tie key foundational concepts to clinical practice and other real-world applications. Interactive Online classes provide group-based virtual learning through Zoom. Classes happen in real time with required attendance during a set schedule. Self-Paced Online classes provide the chance to study at your own pace (as long as you meet certain assignment due dates) and meet individually or in small groups with instructors as needed via Zoom at times that work for the students (after an initial Zoom meeting, there are no required attendance times).

Student Support

Tutoring in any subject is available to fit student schedules. SCU students can also take advantage of exclusive health sciences workshops and symposiums offered by the University.
