Online learning happens in two different formats at St. Kate’s – hybrid and fully online. Learning in online environments is different than face-to-face learning.


Hybrid learning happens in both face-to-face and online environments. Usually the time between the two environments is split half-and-half (one week online; one week face-to-face). However, the schedules for specific courses may vary.


Online learning happens entirely online. There is no face-to-face component and much of the work happens asynchronously, meaning there is no specific time that the class meets together as a group.
