Learning Formats

Hybrid Format

Meridian’s hybrid learning format combines online courses with weeklong onsite labs. The hybrid learning format is designed to enable students to pursue their graduate education at a flexible pace, combining asynchronous coursework via the University’s custom social learning platform, Pivot, live course video calls with faculty, synchronous student community engagement, and one-week onsite labs. By combining innovative online education methodologies with rich video calls and deep onsite connections, the hybrid format enables students to contribute locally and perceive globally.

Each quarter, students take one or multiple seven-week online courses. This schedule provides students with time between quarters to rest, engage, and prepare. Additionally, students attend at least two weeklong onsite labs per academic year. Labs run Monday through Friday throughout the year, with onsite labs taking place at Meridian’s Bay Area Center and other globally distributed locations.

Online Format

In Meridian's online learning format, students can complete 100% of their coursework degree requirements online. Online labs are also available for students who choose not to travel to onsite labs. Students can select lab dates, locations, and formats based on their personal circumstances and professional aspirations
