Meridian offers its Master's and Doctoral programs in two formats:
1) Monthly Learning Format
2) Blended Learning Format
The Monthly and Blended learning formats support the transformative learning intent of the curriculum while providing adult learners, who have significant commitments to family and/or employment, with the opportunity to complete their graduate coursework within a reasonable time frame.
Students who choose the Monthly learning format meet in residence for one weekend per month (Friday through Sunday) during the Fall and Spring quarters (six weekends per year). Additionally, students meet for one-week sessions during the Winter and Summer quarters, respectively.
The Blended learning format combines online learning with two week-long residential sessions each calendar year. This combination of learning online and learning in residence offers the student the opportunity to complete Meridian's degree programs by traveling to the San Francisco Bay Area twice per academic year, one week in the Winter and one week in the Summer.
