For the second consecutive summer, online undergraduate courses will be available through Eastern University’s Web site.
The summer will be divided between two six-week sessions. Courses will be offered by the departments of Education, Business, History, English, Communications and Social Work. Select Core Curriculum requirements will also be available. Courses will range from introductory-level to advanced.
A finalized course listing and tuition rates will be available in March. Students will be able to register for fall and summer courses simultaneously.
Laura Diefenderfer, M.S.Ed., Special Project Coordinator, articulated the University’s recognition of the varied demands on students today: internships, field experience, practicums and jobs, to name a few. A goal of Online Initiatives at Eastern University is to enable students to get the most out of their educational experience.
“We don’t want to take away from the College of Arts and Science as a residential college,” said Peter McLallen, Assistant to the Provost for Online Initiatives.
Since 2001, Eastern University’s Campolo College of Graduate and Professional Studies has offered courses in alternative formats such as blended (conducted both in the classroom and online) and distance (conducted completely online).
Seventy-four percent of students enrolled in Eastern’s summer 2011 courses said they would recommend online courses to another student, a survey revealed.
