Types of courses

Seminars: Each seminar consists of SIX sessions. Each session will be two hours long and will either be Monday, Wednesday, Friday OR Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Make sure you add all 6 sessions over the seminars’ two-week duration (July 19 - July 31) to your schedule.

Electives: These sessions are throughout the event and most will be 50 minutes long, though some are 110 minutes long. The electives are stand-alone classes that do not have other courses connected to them.
