Location update: This program has moved to online-supported remote delivery through April 2022. Instead of attending classes in person, you’ll learn through an interactive videoconference platform, participating in live sessions with instructors, live discussions with classmates and group work. You’ll also engage in readings, in-class exercises, case studies, individual and group assignments, and other learning activities. Attendance is mandatory, and all classes run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PDT/PST. (Please check your time zone and adjust your schedule if needed.)
We deliver our disability and rehabilitation management courses through a combination of lectures, presentations and practical examples. You will work with a cohort—a group of your peers who share experiences and ideas from their own professional backgrounds.
Coursework: What to expect
Courses have pre-reading and assignments. You can expect to spend between two and four hours on each assignment. You will also make presentations and participate in exercises, group discussions and case studies.
We evaluate and grade all courses on a pass/fail basis using a combination of your assignments, individual or group projects, exams, participation and attendance.
