Unique to the program is its hybrid delivery format, which provides a blend of classroom-based and online instruction. Classes meet one night per week and are supplemented with weekly online instruction. Classes are structured in eight-week sessions, allowing students to progress at a full- or part-time pace, dependent upon their comfort level. The format provides personal contact with faculty and classmates – a hallmark of a Clarke education – while maximizing individual flexibility.
Several areas of study are offered in the Timesaver format including undergraduate degrees in business administration, communication, computer information systems, psychology, religious studies, RN-to-BSN nursing, supervision and leadership, and information technology. Graduate degrees offered in the Timesaver format include Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) and Master of Business Administration (MBA).
