BEACAPS offers a range of courses in these disciplines both in the traditional classroom, online, and/or in a blended (online and classroom) settings. Classes are offered during the day, in the evening and sometimes on the weekend.
Throughout all of our courses, our professors emphasize the use of critical thinking and application of knowledge to assist students in their future academic and professional goals.
