The new format offers considerable advantages such as accelerated learning and the flexibility of program enhancement options.

Program Structure

Career Programs are divided according to levels. Students will complete each level in approximately 10 weeks (the number of weeks may vary according to the Academic Calendar). At least 2 levels are required for certification. Programs may be attended for only one level as a study abroad experience, at the end of which is issued to the student a transcript for coursework completed. 

The core education of each level consists of 5 courses (15 credits). Core courses are mandatory and fundamental for each career program. Offered in Sessions A – B – C, each session lasts for 3 weeks with courses held Monday through Friday.

Optional Program Components offered when regular courses are not in session include internships to non-beginning levels, Italian language during the January or September intersessions, and 15 hour specialized seminars during Intersession Weeks.
