Whether you pursue your degree as a Campus (Hybrid) or Online student, you’ll take classes taught by world-class educators and experience the academic rigor RMCAD is known for. We ensure every student of RMCAD is included in our College’s community—whether you’re on our Denver campus or thousands of miles away.
Campus (Hybrid) Students
RMCAD’s approach to hybrid education allows you to get the most from your college experience in a flexible and affordable manner. All campus students will take a portion of their coursework online. Here’s how it works:
Many classes are offered both online and on-campus. RMCAD’s online and on-campus courses align in eight-week terms so that you can take offerings via both modalities while still moving efficiently through your program. When a course is offered both online and on campus, you can decide which modality you prefer. Perhaps you want to save on tuition and take as many online classes as possible; or maybe you want the hands-on instruction that comes from being in class. You’re able to choose the option that suits you best.
Some classes are offered only online. We’ve carefully chosen the courses that best lend themselves to an online delivery method. Using multimedia and storytelling components specifically tailored for creative learners, these courses engage you in an intensive and consistent academic environment. Our online classes enable you to stay on top of cutting-edge technology trends and prepare for the competitive job market. Find out more about the online experience by learning about our Learning Management System.
Online learning allows you to fit your educational experience around your lifestyle. Whether you have weekday responsibilities to work around, or you simply focus better at night, an online learning experience at RMCAD offers an adaptable schedule easily tailored to suit your needs from one semester to the next. Technological innovations have made it easier than ever to break down the barriers of time and distance; there’s nothing stopping you from pursuing the career of your dreams from wherever you are.
Just because you’re not on campus doesn’t mean you’re disconnected. RMCAD provides the same services and resources to online students as it does for campus attendees—you’ll have the support you need at your fingertips.
Instruction at RMCAD has always emphasized community, collaboration, innovation, and personal attention. We’ve incorporated these same philosophies into the design of our online courses. Backed by certifications in online teaching and course design and supported by a team of media developers, the same talented faculty that teach on-campus courses also develop and lead our online courses. This collaboration among the entire RMCAD team has inspired our online approach and enabled us to bring the true campus experience right to you.
