About the Fall 2020 Term

We have reorganized our Fall term into a modular format, letting you focus intensely on a few subject areas at once. We’ve also introduced special course codes: when you see 6WK Sess1 and 6WK Sess2, those refer to courses running in either the first or second half of the fall term.
