With online courses through the College of General Studies, you will have an array of options for where and when to pursue your course work.
Our online courses meet the same standards for content excellence and expert instruction as our traditional classroom courses, and are offered in the following formats:
- Web courses feature Web-based instruction and interaction. Students interact with their instructors and other students through the class Web site. Students complete the course requirements within one term and move through the course materials as a cohort.
- Hybrid courses combine Web-based interaction and face-to-face instructions. Students are required to attend scheduled workshops and participate in online discussions and activities. Students complete the course requirements within one term and move through the course materials as a cohort.
- Self-paced courses use a flexible format where students move through assigned course materials at their own pace. Workshops and Web-based activities are features of some of the courses. The course syllabus provides more information about workshops and Web-based activities for these courses.
For information about specific classes, visit the Course Search Tool at www.courses.as.pitt.edu. The College of General Studies menu is the third one down from the top of the page, and all online and hybrid courses are listed there.
