Our classroom-based courses vary in length from 4 hours to 20 hours. Each week will feature opportunities to socialize with EPIC faculty and other EPIC trainees.
EPIC also offers several digital courses taught in an online distance learning format, enabling anyone anywhere in the world to engage in the world-class coursework and high quality instruction offered at Columbia University. Each digital course is one month long, with lectures and course material presented online in weekly segments. The flexible format will include video or audio recordings of lecture material, file sharing and topical discussion fora, self-assessment exercises, real-time electronic office hours and access to instructors for feedback during the course.
