What are your class schedules like?

Our Adult Degree Programs at Warner Pacific College are built around the working lives of busy students. Your classes will be taught in a cohort method, meaning you will be with the same group of students throughout the program and your cohort will meet on the same night, at the same time, usually in the same classroom for your entire program. Classes are held once a week, with an occasional Saturday seminar and each course runs 5-6 weeks in length.
