Interactive Teaching

master of science in administrative studies

Learning is about contact, contact between accomplished faculty and talented learners. It is about insightful faculty, diverse in background and discipline, offering their expertise and enthusiasm to receptive and accomplished learners, excited to share their ideas, information and reflections. This reciprocal learning climate creates the direct, engaging and spirited atmosphere that attracts executives who comment on board-room activities, writers anxious to polish and share their work, professionals exploring new opportunities and individuals propelled to keep pace in a competitive world.

The dynamic dialogue which results when committed and creative faculty interact with serious and determined men and women is at the heart of the learning process. Learners responding to the expertise, interest and vision of their teachers; and faculty responding to the knowledge, experience and energy of their students enriches the academic enterprise and prepares both to seek the challenges the global community presents.
