What to Expect
Each course is offered online and is made up of specific topic modules. Most modules contain course notes supplemented with images, animations, and case studies, as well as step-by-step instructions for gearing up and accessing UF library materials and e-journals. Students have 24/7 access to course modules, which are released over the duration of the UF semester, enabling them to work at their own pace to meet course deadlines.
Assessment is continuous throughout the semester. Grades are based on the successful completion of a written assignment at the end of each module. Some courses also include timed multiple choice quizzes and self-tests. Assignment due dates and other important dates are provided on a course calendar. Students interact with teaching assistants, course instructors, and each other, using private course e-mail, discussion boards, and live chat sessions.
Students can register for one or more courses each semester. All graduate certificate programs are conducted fully online; however, all M.S. students must attend the UF campus for 3 days in their final semester to take a final comprehensive written and oral qualifying exam.
