William Jewell College will offer the flexibility of fully accredited online classes combined with the academic excellence of the area’s only national liberal arts college with its summer session running June 6-July 29.
More than 20 online classes are a part of the summer schedule, including classes in accounting, business, communication, education, English, history, philosophy, political science and psychology. Competitively priced at $425 per credit hour with no additional fees, online registration begins at 10 p.m. April 5.
“The course offerings are ideal for college students or adult learners wishing to pick up some elective hours during the summer months,” said Stephanie DeClue, director of Curry Library at William Jewell and head of the College’s task force for summer classes. “Because of William Jewell’s outstanding national reputation, credits earned here are easily transferred to other institutions.” DeClue pointed out that many of the summer courses are taught by experienced Jewell faculty members with Ph.D.s or terminal degrees in their field. On-ground courses are also available.
Among the online courses to be offered are financial accounting, business management, business law, marketing principles, elementary statistics and business economics, media reporting and writing, information technology, business writing, world history, introduction to philosophy, introduction to American government, basic psychology and abnormal psychology. Traditional classroom-based course offerings are also available.
William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
