For some, it is possible to commit to full-time study on campus in Ann Arbor. For others, part-time studying and off-campus learning opportunities are better alternatives. Still, for others, a customized program at the workplace is most valuable. ISD offers courses, certificates, and degrees to fit all of these scenarios. In ISD, it is typical for on campus and online students to study and interact in courses and programs at the same time through the creative uses of technology and innovative instructional design. It is also usual for our faculty to share their expertise by customizing and delivering a program off campus in a workplace setting.

Through the wide array and global reach of ISD programs, there is a learning experience to fit the interests and needs of individuals and organizations striving to be the leaders and best.
