Course Changes due to COVID-19

Spring 2021 Courses

Despite the pandemic, our commitment to delivering high-quality, personalized education is as strong as ever. Our faculty and staff have worked hard to offer a variety of courses this semester, spanning a wide range of both topics and teaching modes. A table listing the courses and modalities, as well as a key to the table, is listed below. Please check back frequently as it is subject to change. If you have specific questions about how an individual course will be run, feel free to contact the instructor directly. To comply with room capacity limits, some in-person courses may be capped. For those students specifically seeking an in-person experience and finding a given course capped, we hope the list below will make it fairly easy to find a good alternative.

All online—These courses will be offered virtually (either synchronously or asynchronously) for all students, regardless of whether they are living on campus, in Rochester, or are residing elsewhere.

Hybrid—These courses will have the option of attending class in person (if guidelines permit). Please note that even when courses convene in person, they will remain fully accessible to students who will need to be participating remotely, via some combination of recorded sessions, online discussion forums, special Zoom office-hours, and so forth (with synchronous and/or asynchronous options available). Depending on enrollments and classroom size, it is possible that these courses may require those students opting for in-person instruction to alternate between in-person and remote attendance.
