What is Cohort Study?
As a student in the Curry College PSL Program, you will be part of a cohort group. This means that the same students will be in all of your classes for the entire program, start to finish. Cohort group learning has proven to be very effective for adult learners because it creates a community of professionals who can study together, provide support, discuss common on-the-job problems, and offer networking opportunities.
