Most courses are adapted from leading colleges and universities, including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and many other prominent universities, and then infused with a Christian worldview. The best academics provide students with the best learning opportunities. Of course, at this stage of the development of Oak Valley College, some of the expectations are not those you may find at these prestigious universities, but that does not mean we cannot use these courses as the standard of excellence.
There are two basic categories of coursework - general education and major courses. All courses are required to complete the degree.
Courses are scheduled to meet for 90-minutes twice a week over 14 weeks with an additional session for a final comprehensive exam or project - 15 weeks total.
On average, you are expected to complete ten hours per week in classwork, reading, homework, and projects per course times the four courses you complete each semester. This translates to roughly 40 hours of work per week across the four courses.
You should come to each class session prepared to fully participate. Participation is critical to ensuring your success in the course.
