Remote Video

If you'd like a live experience, you can also join some Dallas classes via a Skype-like technology.


DTS also offers one-week intensives and SuperWeeks where you can take two live classes in Dallas during a single week.

The Value of Intensives

Online classes offer rich instruction and interaction from your current setting, while intensives at the Dallas campus and extension sites allow you to spend time in person with professors and fellow students.
