Integrated Hybrid format

Overview of Integrated Hybrid Cohort Format

A combination of online, classroom, and experiential learning

The integrated hybrid model is completed in two years with a combination of intensive face-to-face sessions and online coursework. Students complete the program with a cohort of peers representing many different perspectives. Students learn from each other and build relationships that will provide support throughout the program and a valuable network for the future.

Schedule

After starting with a five-day summer experience, classes meet on a semester schedule September through mid-April (fall and spring semesters) and mid-May through mid-August (two summer terms). Coursework will be online and supported by three on-campus class sessions per term.

ML 510 – Visions of Leadership: A Historical and Literary Journey

ML 514 – Research Methods

ML 580 – Colloquium of Contemporary Theories of Leadership

ML 588 – Final Project Seminar: Action Research

In addition, a sequenced list of electives is prepared for each cohort. In the cohort program, students complete 11 courses, including an action research final project seminar (Plan D).

Final Project for the Integrated Hybrid Cohort Format: Plan D

The Integrated Hybrid Cohort format includes a final seminar in which each student prepares an action research project during the course of one term (Plan D). Plan D is comparable to Plan B and requires both ML 514 – Research Methods and ML 580 – Colloquium on Contemporary Theories of Leadership as prerequisites to ML 588 Final Project Seminar: Action Research. ML 588 is taken on a Pass/No Credit basis.
