We enter this spring season with signs of hope and recovery, after a very long year sheltered in our homes and isolated from each other and from our beautiful SCU main and JST campuses. Santa Clara and Alameda Counties recently moved to less restrictive tiers of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, vaccine rollout and effectiveness look promising, test positivity rates within our region and our local campus remain on track, and we are offering some hybrid courses in the spring quarter.
At the same time, we need to continue to be cautious to ensure the health and safety of our campus community. Given the status of our public health trends and the mandate from state and county public health orders, we have made the following calendar and modality decisions for the Summer 2021 session for our graduate programs.
Summer 2021 Graduate Instruction
Leavey School of Business - The Leavey School of Business will offer a limited selection of hybrid/modified face-to-face courses. These modified face-to-face courses will be identified by the Graduate Programs Team in the next few days and communicated to our MBA and MS students. Summer session classes begin on June 14.
School of Education and Counseling Psychology - Teaching and learning in the School of Education and Counseling Psychology will continue remotely for the summer 2021 session, with the exception of MATTC which will include some modified face-to-face or hybrid classes.
