To accommodate the needs of today’s students, we have created a low residency, hybrid program of study that will meet face-to-face once a month (starting at 2:00 pm on Friday with classes continuing on Saturday) in our beautiful downtown Santa Barbara campus. Students will continue their learning between the once a month meetings via virtual on-line classroom that will allow for optimal learning throughout the program.
