In-person class sessions take place on our Northern Virginia campus approximately one weekend per month so that you can be fully engaged and distraction free. In-person classes include robust discussions, engaging presentations, and hands-on collaborative group projects and activities. The immersive sessions also provide you with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with members of your cohort and the faculty so that you can strengthen the relationships that are so crucial to the UVA student experience. Between class meetings, students work with classmates and faculty through collaborative technologies, including Blackboard and Zoom. The cohort meets formally about once per month, with live virtual class sessions mid-week.
