Many classes offer interactive lecture, activity and hands-on lab sessions. Check out our travel courses, blended courses (combination of classroom and internet-based) and online courses. Courses range from introductory to those more advanced that satisfy the first two years of four-year degrees in science, engineering, medicine, and more.
