Winter Term courses can help students graduate in four years

WKU Winter Term provides students with numerous course opportunities outside the traditional fall and spring semesters. Students can catch up on a missed course, get in to a popular course that frequently fills, potentially improve their GPA or get ahead in their coursework. But there may be an even more significant reason to take advantage of these courses at WKU: 80 percent of WKU students who graduate within four years take at least one Winter Term or Summer Sessions course.

Winter Term 2012 has more than 285 course choices, ranging from general education classes to graduate courses. A variety of unique subjects are available, including Gerontology, Descriptive Astronomy, Chinese, Russian and Introduction to Water Resources. Students can even enroll in Costume Technology, a course that studies the history and construction of complete stage costumes for the theatre.

Study Away and Study Abroad courses are also available, including Flood Plain Management, which will take students throughout the western United States, and a course studying economics throughout Australia. Several online courses are also available.

Registration for 2012 Winter Term courses is going on now, and courses take place Jan. 2 through Jan. 20. Winter Term is a unit of Extended Learning and Outreach.
