ideal for women like you.

Specifically, credits are earned through nine 8-week course blocks. Taking one new course every eight weeks, you can focus on one course at a time, rather than juggle multiple courses every semester.

A Learning Style That Models the Real World
The reason Alverno’s unique learning curriculum works is that it mirrors the workplace—which doesn’t offer letter grades. In the real world, learning comes from successfully completing a task, versus simply reading about it.
At Alverno, learning encompasses demonstrating what you have learned as you master the content. Alverno’s learning experience is valued by both students and employers, as reflected by Alverno’s 92% employment rate within six months of graduation*.
In addition, Alverno College was once again recognized for its “strong commitment to teaching” in U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 Best Colleges Guidebook. In the three-year history of this category, Alverno is the only college in Wisconsin to receive this recognition in the Midwest Regional standings each year.
