The faculty and staff of the iSchool have wide expertise in conducting brief residencies both on campus and at Syracuse University’s network of remote locations.

It is also possible to enroll a full cohort of employees in an existing course, reserved solely for employees of your organization with customization, such as a choice of project activities and writing assignments. Employees can take single courses without the need for matriculation into a formal program and yet still have the flexibility of counting the credits toward a future degree or certificate program.
