Course Schedule

Please note that course schedules may be amended due to low enrollment, faculty availability, and/or other factors.

Online Sync Sessions are an integral part of the online learning experience. Additional information about learning concepts and assignments may be discussed and sync sessions offer valuable opportunities for students to interact with their faculty and peers during the term. We encourage all students to attend live, but if they are unable to, sync sessions will be recorded and posted within Canvas to allow for an asynchronous model of success as well.

Please note: if you believe a math or statistics refresher would be helpful for success in this course, we recommend participating in the non-credit Statistics Learning Studio prior to enrollment in MSGH 408. Please refer here for more information and to enroll.
