***In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, UC San Diego Extension has transitioned all of our spring and summer in-class courses to an online or hybrid format. Courses listed as "Hybrid" will include synchronous (live) remote lessons each week using our Zoom conferencing system. "Online" classes will be comprised of weekly pre-recorded lectures and guided assignments from the instructor.*** Both course types include communication access to the instructor and classmates.***
