William Jewell College will offer the flexibility of online classes combined with the academic excellence of the area’s only national liberal arts college with its summer session running June 4-July 28.
More than 25 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 $450 per credit hour with no additional fees, online registration begins at 7 a.m. March 1.
“The course offerings are ideal for college students or adult learners wishing to pick up some elective hours during the summer months,” said Dr. Anne Dema, provost at William Jewell. “Because of the college’s outstanding national reputation, credits earned here are easily transferred to other institutions.” Dr. Dema 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.
Among the online courses to be offered are financial accounting, business management, business law and ethics, marketing research, media writing, principles of microeconomics and statistics, principles of macroeconomics, 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 in many disciplines.
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.
