Search Tips

Schedule Type. The schedule type of a course distinguishes the instructional delivery mechanism for a course. For example, an online class is presented in a Distance delivery mechanism. The available schedule types include:


Organized instructor-led classroom instruction. Lecture courses may include a variety of pedagogies such as discussion and class presentations. Generally one hour of classroom instruction and a minimum of two hours of out-of-class student work per week.


A course in which all or nearly all of the organized instruction is conducted online or by distance learning methodologies.

Online asynchronous delivery means 100% of instruction is in an online format, but the course has no required live virtual meetings. Students have a time frame for participation each week, but they may contribute whenever they choose in accordance with course instructions. Some asynchronous courses may offer optional live sessions such as desktop video chats, but live, real-time class meetings are not required. These classes are noted as online with no meeting times.

Online synchronous delivery means that 100% of instruction is in an online format. These classes, however, require students to meet online at specified times for live instruction, student presentations, or other real-time activities. Synchronous online classes have no campus meeting place; rather, students log into the online classroom from off-site locations. These classes are noted as online with scheduled meeting times.

Combined/Hybrid Methodologies

A course in which online (or other distance) instruction is combined with face-to-face instruction, where a substantial portion of the face-to-face instruction is replaced by online instruction.

Hybrid asynchronous delivery means one or more weekly meeting times are replaced by online delivery.

Hybrid synchronous delivery means one or more weekly lectures are replaced by online live instruction.

Hy-Flex delivery means classes are delivered in person and simultaneously online.

Recitation or Discussion

Regularly scheduled discussion session that is offered in addition to lecture instruction, but is generally scheduled in smaller groups than the lecture. This type of instruction is only offered in combination with lecture and may not be used as the only type of instruction for a course.


Organized instructor-led classroom instruction in a recitation (two-way communication) format. Usually used for smaller sections.


Laboratory experiences (academic or clinical) that require special-purpose equipment for student participation, experimentation, observation or practice in a field of study. May involve discussion of a forthcoming laboratory or review of a completed laboratory session. Includes scheduled laboratory periods as well as laboratory experiences for which times may be selected by individual students.

Vocational or technical labs constitute instructional activities involving training for employment in a work-like environment with active faculty teaching role. In the College of Law, a lab is a simulated practice experience.


An organized method of instruction with emphasis on the synthesizing nature of the design process and conducted through critique and one-to-one interactions. E.g., painting, sculpture and other lab-type activities conducted by faculty.

Music Individual Instruction

Large ensembles (e.g., bands, choirs, orchestra, opera), music labs and the like conducted by faculty.

Chamber Music Ensembles

Small ensembles (e.g., string quartet, woodwind quintet, brass quintet, jazz combo) receiving faculty coaching that are not conducted by faculty.

Music Ensemble or Performance

Large ensembles (e.g., bands, choirs, orchestra, opera), music labs and the like conducted by faculty.

Clinical or Practicum

A faculty-supervised training and educational experience where the student is working in a field setting.

Internship, Externship or Cooperative Education

Supervised experience in an area of specialization that may be conducted either on or off campus with the student making periodic reports to the instructor. Includes practicum, internship, student teaching, and cooperative work experience.

Independent Study or Research

Independent projects or research such as special problems or special topics in which the student works more or less individually at various locations, ordinarily requiring intermittent consultation with the instructor.

Directed Study or Research

Used where a regular catalog course is offered individually to a single student in a term the catalog course is not offered. Also may be used for specific research assignments directed by an instructor.

Instructor. Since a subject code must be selected, it helps to know the correct subject of the course an instructor is teaching in order to find courses taught by the desired instructor. If you are unsure, you can select multiple subjects before selecting an instructor from the list.
