Hybrid courses are the latest trend in the academic community. Little research however exists on this new delivery method. This study compares the performance of students (n = 36) enrolled in two criminology courses taught at a community college. One course was delivered using traditional lecture methods while the other course was delivered as a hybrid course.  Using t-tests, seven variables were examined to determine statistical significance between the two groups of students. Performance measures included course requirements and final course grades for both classes. Course requirements were identical for each group. Hybrid students performed at higher levels than traditional students and t-test scores indicate statistically significant differences for exams and final scores between the two groups.
