The Master of Arts in Digital Media and Learning (DML) program is designed to accommodate adult students, most of whom have full-time jobs and other obligations.
Most courses of this 30-credit program are 3 credits each.
A nominal program consists of 10 courses.
During the regular academic year most classes meet on Teaching Weekends, an "alternate weekend" schedule of about two weekends a month; Friday evenings and Saturday mornings and afternoons. Each semester has 9 sessions of about 5 hours each. Current DML Class Schedule.
There may be courses which meet during the work week, to accommodate students in the Teaching Credential Program and others for whom week nights are better than weekends.
The program also uses the summer session rather intensively, to accommodate those in educational professions. In contrast to the regular academic year:
- Summer classes meet evenings, weekends and/or online.
- Duration is anywhere from 2-8 weeks, depending on scheduling and credit requirement factors.
