We are fully integrated with the full-time program from a curriculum perspective. We have the flexibility to take any and all classes that are offered, since all full-time sections have a corresponding evening and weekend section. For example, a professor may teach a class in the Hyde Park campus on Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon, then teach a Tuesday evening section or Saturday morning section. So, curriculum wise, there is no difference.
