Educational Methodologies

The faculty and administration believe that cooperation and collaboration foster the most productive learning environment. The College employs teaching methods that consider students’ individual needs and past experiences.

Some of the programs use learning modules. Each learning module is a topical unit of information, learning objectives, and student evaluation methods. Administered under the supervision of faculty members, this approach allows students from varied experiential backgrounds to work at their own levels of understanding, within a prescribed framework. Students are also encouraged to pursue their individual areas of professional interest through faculty-guided independent study projects.

Courses in Anatomy and Physiology, Physics, and Microbiology usually combine the lecture and laboratory learning approach and provide students the essential scientific background that is the foundation of the College’s healthcare disciplines.

The College provides the following definitions to assist students in choosing courses that meet their learning needs and lifestyles. Courses are identified on the Master Schedule as belonging to one of the categories. Courses that are not traditional have the following designations: Hybrid (H) and Online (O).
