Registration Open for Summer Courses
By Merritt Jenkins
Registration is open for Lee University’s summer courses, which consist of three four-week sessions through May, June, and July. The first session, scheduled to begin Tuesday, May 12, will move online through the Zoom platform.
“Summer school is fast, focused, and flexible, and a number of students have had great success with it,” said Phil Cook, vice president for enrollment. “It’s an opportunity for students to enroll in harder classes or core classes and complete them quickly.”
Over 70 courses will be offered this summer, including Intro to Business Analytics, Physical Science, several religion and music courses, and a variety of introductory English classes, among many others. Lee President Dr. Paul Conn, along with several other psychology professors, will also teach Understanding Human Behavior during the May session.
For the May session, most faculty will continue with synchronous Zoom classes offered at the designed times. Other courses will be offered asynchronously through Zoom, which means class will be recorded and made available by video for students to access at different times, for their convenience.
“This should be interesting!” said Dr. Debbie Murray, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “I believe it will add more flexibility and freedom in the delivery of courses, and I recommend that students check this out before registering for a course to determine if it will work for them.”
Dorms will still be closed during the May session, but, in the event that in-person classes are an option, they will be opened for the June and July sessions. The decision to move the June and July sessions online will be made a month prior to their start dates.
“There is an appeal to summer school,” said Conn. “If you are back home and can’t come to campus, it might be a great time to commit to a summer class and get some good work done.”
In addition to traditional summer courses, Lee University’s Division of Adult Learning offers seven-week courses beginning in May and June. Online coursework carries the same level of rigor as traditional, on-campus programs, but classes are designed with flexibility in mind and formatted to optimize learning.
