Students are taught the fundamentals of computer science during the first week of the program. This involves learning basic and advanced data structures and understanding how to use JavaScript instantiation patterns. In the following five weeks, students learn Full Stack JavaScript through a hands-on approach by working on actual code bases. By the end of this five-week session, students should be familiar with inheritance patterns, algorithms, API frameworks, and CSS frameworks, among other topics.

The following five weeks of the program emphasizes application design and development. Students work in teams to create functional applications and apply their knowledge of bug testing to ensure their projects operate as anticipated. During the final week of the program, instructors help students prepare to enter the workforce by conducting practice interviews and teaching negotiation tactics.

The Hack Reactor Software Engineering Online Immersive program, created in 2014, features the same schedule as the in-person program. Students also receive one-on-one mentorship from cohort leads and tech mentors and have access to after-hours programming to engage with fellow students and alumni. The part-time online program takes place over the course of 36 weeks with two three-hour weeknight classes per week and a five-hour Saturday session. Part-time students can receive additional support from technical staff via video-conferencing.

Galvanize also offers the 19-week Hack Reactor Software Engineering Immersive with JavaScript and Python. Students in this program are required to complete three projects. For their final project, students utilize cloud-native services and their own custom code to develop a durable Web application.

Finally, Galvanize operates an 18-week immersive program for active-duty military personnel who are in their final six months of service. The program, known as Operation Level Up, is offered in partnership with local Transition Assistance Programs and includes 700 hours of instruction. Tuition is covered entirely by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs' Veteran Employment Through Technology Education Courses (VET TEC) or the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill.

While no coding experience is required for these courses, prospective students should first complete Galvanize's free prep course to learn JavaScript fundamentals.
