Course Delivery

MCS delivers courses to you in a variety of ways:

1-Week Modules

Modules allow you to take the classroom portion of an entire course in only 5 days. Following the module, you have six weeks to complete assignments and coursework. This is a great option if you only have limited time to study!

6-Week Terms

Term courses run 90 minutes/day, Monday-Thursday, for 5 weeks. The 6th week is set aside for you to complete any revisions to assignments so they can meet competency. This style is great if you work and can be excused for a couple hours a day to study!

4-Month Semesters

Semester courses meet twice per week over a 4-month semester (September-December or January-April). These courses typically meet for 90 minute blocks on Mondays and Wednesdays, though we occasionally run weekly evening courses in 3-hour blocks.

Live-Stream Video

You can join many of MCS’s courses from anywhere in the world by live stream over the internet. This is ideal if you want to study at MCS from a distance. There are some limitations, and live-streaming requires you to have adequate internet on your end.

Video on Demand

If you can’t join a live class, many courses have lectures captured daily and uploaded to our video site. VOD students will engage with all of the recordings within specified time-frames to keep pace with the in-class students. Check with our registrar’s office if you see something you’d like to take!

Online Video

With Online Video, you don’t have set times to view lectures or attend class, although you do have deadlines for assignments and requirements to interact with other online students in the course. These are offered on an as-requested basis and must be approved through the Registrar’s office.

Directed Study

If onsite, live stream, or recorded courses aren’t options for you, our faculty are often able to work with you to customize a course into a one-on-one learning experience. Often these opportunities come from direct conversation with the faculty, but you can also check for options with our registrar.
