What is a Hybrid Program Format?
Hybrid is sometimes also called ‘partially online’, ‘flexible’, ‘blended’ or ‘low residency’. Hybrid graduate programs in public affairs social sciences have both campus and online classes. You learn at your own pace remotely as well as benefit from interacting with a personal network of students and teachers on campus in your local classes, fieldwork, intensives, or other onsite requirements. This connection with the campus experience also gives you in-person access to your college or university so you might research in the library, use the laboratories, while at the same time, benefitting from all the virtual study tools of the online course management system.
