Combining Learning With Technology

Our 14 online degree programs (except for DACMCP and Applied Psychology taught in China) start each semester with residential intensives in the San Francisco Bay Area (currently on hold due to COVID-19). At the residential intensives, students join faculty members for 3 to 7 exciting days of workshops, presentations, faculty advising, and collaborative learning.

Students then continue their course of study in our multimedia online environment, taught by CIIS faculty–all thought leaders and innovators in their fields.

A Unique Combination of Personalized and Online Learning

The Residential Intensive (currently on hold due to COVID-19)

You'll start each semester with a residential intensive in the San Francisco Bay Area (please note that the DACMCP and MA in Applied Pyschology taught in China do not have residential intensives). Our residential intensives bring students and faculty together for 3 to 7 stimulating days of workshops, classes, and community building. You'll get the chance to meet and learn with fellow students and faculty in classes and informal gatherings, while enjoying the breathtaking Bay Area environment.

Online Learning

Between residential intensives, students participate in an exciting array of online courses. Our online format allows students from all over the world to work closely with faculty and to share ideas and study in an interactive and diverse learning environment.
