Graduate Cohort Programs for professionals

A cohort is a group of students who follows the same set schedule and progresses through an accelerated program together.  The unique scheduling, along with small class sizes, promotes an interactive learning environment and facilitates networking opportunities and career strengthening relationships.  Students meet on Saturdays, or one or two nights per week.  These part-time, accelerated programs are offered in West Haven, Orange, and New London, Connecticut.
