Fall 2020 Information

We are very excited that you will be joining our program in Fall 2020. Like universities worldwide, we are in the process of evaluating a variety of options for instructional delivery; we will prioritize the health of our community in determining how we will provide instruction in the fall. 

We are looking forward to being face-to-face as soon as it is possible. For students who are unable to join us for face-to-face classes for any reason and at any point during the semester, however, we will be making instructional materials available online as of the first day of classes for those with the technological means to access them.
