UPDATE: Given the sharp increase in COVID-19 cases in Maryland and the rapid spread of the Omicron variant globally, and with the health and safety of our community foremost in mind, we will conduct our stateside hybrid courses that begin January 12, 2022, in an online format via Zoom. Faculty will hold Zoom teleconference sessions during times originally scheduled for face-to-face class sessions; look for instructions from your assigned faculty. A decision will be made in the new year about the instruction format for later course start dates.
