Hampton Roads’ Most Convenient College Now Even More Accessible
Every year, countless people postpone what could be a life-changing decision. They know the right kind of college degree could propel them into a new, exciting career path, but they also have pressing needs, families to support and bills to pay. Quitting their jobs and going to school fulltime is just not an option. Of course, there’s always online classes, but that’s not for everyone.
Now, the Virginia Beach and Newport News campuses are offering the best of both worlds…classes on campus, supplemented by online courses. By attending class Friday night and Saturday, along with some online classes, students can earn their Bachelor’s degree in as little as 2.5 years or an Associate’s degree in just 1.5 years.
“With the new ‘traditional student’ – formerly the ‘non-traditional’ student or adult student – now being today’s norm, the weekend program is meant to serve the needs of working adults who don’t have the time to attend class during the week, day or evening,” says Newport News Campus President Dr. John Olson. “This program is delivered using a hybrid model, a ‘flipped classroom’ approach. Students engage with the content during the week, watching recorded lectures, reading materials, participating in online discussions, attending streamed instructor conferences, and then for the in-seat portion of the class, they are able to do more lab and group- related work.”
In both settings, students can enjoy access to meaningful hands-on learning experiences. On campus, they work with equipment typically found in the workplace, and by applying what they learn as they learn it, they can retain more knowledge. That’s what makes hands-on education so valuable. It can make a big difference when taking tests and can mean less on-the-job training once they’ve graduated which is attractive to prospective employers.
Online, the hands-on learning continues. ECPI University’s classes integrate virtual labs where lessons are reinforced with simulated environments. What’s more, support is just a phone call or click away with:
