FAYETTE, Iowa (April 11, 2014) – Registration is under way for Upper Iowa University accelerated summer courses. The five-week courses are offered to all students and include spending one week studying at the UIU main campus in Fayette, Iowa.
"Our summer courses are designed for learners of all types," said Carol Katsumes, academic advising director for the UIU Integrated Enrollment Center. "Whether you're an Upper Iowa student or a student from another university looking to earn credits, or just a person committed to lifelong learning, UIU's summer accelerated courses are a great opportunity to earn three college credits in just five weeks."
The hybrid format of the accelerated summer courses requires students to spend two weeks working online to prepare for their one week on-campus experience, and then to work online for an additional two weeks to complete the course. While on campus, learners will have the opportunity to work with faculty who bring both academic and practical experience to the classroom as well as networking with other learners. Courses are held in two summer sessions: June 30-August 1 and July 7 to August 8.
The first session offers two courses, "Critical Thinking" and "Digital Photography and Editing." The on-campus coursework is scheduled July 14-18. The second session offers three courses – "Public Speaking," "Management Principles," and "Local Field Science." The on-campus classes are July 21-25.
