The Certificate curriculum is organized in four quarters over one calendar year. Students meet in person or virtually, on two-four Saturdays in each of the four quarters to participate in facilitated activities related to that quarter’s content and inquiry project. These Workshop Days include cohort work with the content, inquiry projects and internship experiences. Finally, there is a final event during the last quarter of coursework, when the cohort participates in closing activities and a presentation of learning.
