From general education to graduate courses, WKU Summer Sessions can help students get ahead in coursework and progress toward their degree. More than 1,200 courses are available with classes offered at WKU’s Bowling Green and regional campuses, online and through Study Abroad and Study Away.
According to Alicia Bingham, WKU summer specialist, enrollment in Summer Sessions has increased compared to this time last year. “This is an exciting time for students interested in Summer Sessions,” Bingham said. “Students have a lot of choices, making it easy to find classes that fit their schedule and meet their academic goals.”
WKU Study Abroad gives students the opportunity to study nearly anywhere in the world. This summer, there are classes going to China, Italy, Germany, South Africa, Scotland, Canada and Mexico. Nine WKU engineering students will participate in the Semester at Sea program.
With the addition of WKU Study Away, Bingham said students can now travel within the United States and earn college credit. Study Away is offering five domestic travel courses this summer, including several in New York City and one in Puerto Rico.
WKU Summer Sessions also partners with University College Commonwealth School to offer Summer Early Entry, a program that offers developmental English, reading and math courses during the summer for incoming freshmen. Summer Early Entry allows students to take their required developmental classes in the summer and better prepare them for college in the fall.
Bingham is excited about this year’s potential. “There are several new courses offered this summer,” Bingham said, “including Arabic, Farm Management (at WKU-Glasgow) and Foundations of Teacher Leadership.”
WKU Summer Sessions offers courses that range from three to eight weeks, allowing students to earn up to 15 credit hours toward their degree. Financial aid, on-campus housing, meal plans, computer labs and other student services are also available.
Courses begin May 16, June 6, June 13, July 5 and July 11, so students can take courses throughout the summer. Registration is going on now.
