Course modalities for fall 2021 classes

With the pandemic ongoing, fall 2021 classes in the Psychology Department will remain a mix of hybrid and online. Students will have the option of traditional fully online (online asynchronous, OLA) classes, online synchronous (OLS) classes that meet at a scheduled day & time via Zoom, and hybrid synchronous (HYS) involving a combination of in-person and Zoom meetings. HYS class instructors will contact their students before the semester starts to let them know how the class will meet. If you’re a student and have questions about a class, contact the instructor via e-mail.
