Course Format

Masterclasses are a newer feature of the SBS Community Classroom Program. Masterclasses are taught by an expert instructor as a one-time workshop-style class. The class will be interactive according to the subject matter and students will get the opportunity for Q&A with the instructor(s). The Masterclasses are part of existing undergraduate courses, allowing community members to learn alongside UArizona students.
