FAQs - On-campus courses
Do graduate students have to attend any classes at Messiah’s main campus?
While the majority of the courses are completed online, some of Messiah's graduate programs have two or more one-week intensive courses that take place on campus.
What will the intensive one-week courses be like?
Intensive classes are held on Messiah’s Grantham, Pa. campus. The majority of these one-week courses are held during the summer months and meet up to eight hours daily with a mixture of lecture, discussion, group work, videos and applied exercises. In addition, students will need to work alone and/or in groups in the evenings to prepare for class the next day. Students are often required to complete reading and assignments before and/or after the one-week intensive class.
Is housing available for students during the intensive one-week summer classes?
Yes, we have both housing and meals available for our summer intensive courses. For more information please visit our Housing and Meals page.
