3 on-campus long weekends per semester, remainder of the program is online.

The MS in Health Communication Design and related certificates employ a contemporary philosophy about learning that places flexibility and empathy for students at the forefront. This hybrid program combines online and on-campus learning. Students will come to campus three times per semester for long weekends of intensive study and engage with exceptional faculty and students online for the remainder. On campus visits will occur at the beginning, middle and end of each semester. This means that, even if you live thousands of miles away, this program can still work for you if you’re able to come to our beautiful East Falls, Philadelphia campus just three times per semester.
