We’ve split a 15-week semester into two terms, a 12-week term and a 3-week term, so that you can concentrate your efforts on fewer courses at one time. In the 12-week term, you’ll take three or four courses, rather than the traditional five or six, because active learning requires more classroom engagement than a traditional lecture-based approach. Then, you’ll focus entirely on one experiential learning course that takes you beyond the classroom during the 3-week term.
One of the best perks to the 3-week is you can travel without worrying about any other classes. Also, in the fall you are done with finals before Thanksgiving break, so your break is truly a break...no studying required.
