Simply put, competency-based education puts your education in your hands and allows you to accelerate your path to degree completion. You learn at your own personal pace and then submit a project or an assessment (for instance, a paper or presentation) to demonstrate competency when you’re ready – no more waiting for a test date to arrive and no more cramming.
With MyWay, your degree plan is designed with you in mind, because competency-based education is student-focused rather than course-focused. This means you’ll receive credit for what you know rather than seat time. If you already know a subject you can work towards completing the assessment and immediately move on to the next competency. Additionally, you’ll have a unique set of coaches and mentors that work alongside you until graduation to help you achieve your unique goals.
UMHB faculty has designed the MyWay curriculum with you and your future in mind. Using research to determine what employers are looking for, we've created competencies to help you master the skills needed to succeed in the real world. So what are you waiting for? Get started today!
