Virtual campus learning experience (formerly the on-campus learning experience)

The on-campus learning experience, which previously required students in the BAAS degree to attend two extended weekend programs in Philadelphia, will be transitioning to a virtual campus learning experience, and will not require students to visit campus to complete degree requirements.

The change includes the following:

  • ETHC200, PROW100, and APOP100 will no longer be offered in a hybrid version for the purpose of fulfilling the on-campus learning experience, but instead will only be offered in their completely online format
  • The new virtual campus learning experience requirement will be offered in a virtual format starting in fall 2021 and will not require a visit to campus for the fulfillment of the requirement
  • The new requirement will be a singular event not attached to a course, offered in a virtual format and involving virtual engagement with faculty

BAAS students graduating in spring 2021 and summer 2021 are waived from fulfilling the requirement.

BAAS students graduating fall 2021 and beyond: The newly reenvisioned requirement will replace the current on-campus learning experience for BAAS degree candidates and will be available in a virtual format. This requirement will no longer be affiliated with a course and will be delivered as a virtual event. No tuition or fees will be associated with the requirement. More information will be available later in spring 2021 about the schedule and topics of these events. Students should check in with their advisor with any additional questions.
