Social Welfare: An Interdisciplinary Approach
This article addresses the effectiveness of a time-compressed four-week course format compared to a full-semester 16-week format for a graduate-level course.

However, time-compressed students reported significantly higher levels of course satisfaction and workload difficulty.
