Programs Offered

Online Classroom Delivery Method

At Brighton, the courses are delivered through an online classroom, with students taking one course at a time. In order to complete the program in the required amount of time, we recommend students make a schedule that allows completion of the lessons for each course in no longer than 6–8 weeks per course. Depending on the student’s schedule, motivation, and credit hours of the course, some courses will take more time than others. The instructors and Student Services representatives will help students stay on track, but students must always keep in mind that they must complete the program in the maximum amount of time as set out in the catalog and enrollment agreement.

In many courses, students participate in discussion boards, allowing a combination of interaction with faculty. This interaction, in conjunction with prescribed course assignments comprised of quizzes, writing assignments and case studies, is designed to facilitate the student’s successful completion of each course in a manner that supports the attainment of his/her long-term academic goals.
