What is the difference between a module and a standard course?
The difference is in the way the course is spread out over the semester it falls in.
The Horizon academic year has 3 semesters, and each semester has two 6-week terms. The semesters are:
- Fall: September through to December
- Winter: January through to April
- Spring/Summer: May through to August
The majority of our courses are scheduled in the Fall and Winter semesters while Spring/Summer courses are typically in the form of modules. We have a number of 6-week courses within each term.
Full semester courses run for the duration of the semesters, (typically meeting 1-2 times per week depending on the course). Term courses meet Monday to Thursday, daily, for the duration of the six-week term. Each 6-week term begins with a condensed module course, described above.
