It Takes Two

海角社区 will expand its accelerated 8-week-course offerings starting in Fall 2024. The 8-week-course accelerated program format is part of an effort to help students balancing college with work and family obligations. 

The intensive 8-week-course covers the same content as a traditional 16-week course but in half the time. These accelerated classes will meet more often allowing students to complete the coursework in eight weeks. 海角社区is devoted to finding equity-based solutions for student success. 

There are several reasons why students may be interested in the 8-week-course accelerated program: 

  • Students can take two to three classes at a time, earning the same number of credits in a semester which provides more opportunities to start classes 
  • Students are less likely to have conflicts since class is a shorter eight-week term
  • Students can avoid being burnt out with fewer assignments and deadlines to juggle over the eight-week term 
  • Students receive intensive class contact time over the shorter period, developing a stronger relationship with other students and instructors
