Note: This is a virtual hybrid course pilot. In addition to traditional weekly online activities, students will be able to meet once-a-week, in an immersive instructional environment, using a virtual reality (VR) headset (3D), loaned at no cost, by UMGC. Students may also opt to use the immersive instructional environment using a computer (2D). At this time, only students who live stateside can enroll in a Virtual Reality Hybrid course, as UMGC is not prepared to ship VR headsets overseas or internationally.
