Course Format and Schedule

Graduate level courses offered by the Department of Youth, Family and Community Studies meet in person at the University Center in Greenville. Students enrolled in the blended program, use Adobe Connect to connect to our real-time classes.

What should you expect?

  • Your professor will let you know of both physical and virtual class locations before classes start.
  • For blended class formats, there's a simultaneous live streaming of the course, where students can see, hear and interact with their peers and professors.
  • Expect synchronous and asynchronous class interactions. Your professor will inform you of your assignments and what needs to be completed.

What is expected of you?

  • We strongly encourage students to have a stable high speed Internet connection. A minimum connection speed of 1.5 Mbs is recommended.  
  • A fast computer with a minimum of 4Gb RAM.
  • Please have a working microphone, webcam and a headset/earphones ready to be used during class. 
  • For Windows users, we encourage students to use Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox to connect to the virtual room. 
  • For Mac, please use these instructions to allow Adobe add in to run on Safari
  • You will need to install the Adobe Flash player on your computer.
