More than 30 new classes are available to students interested in earning extra credits or learning something new during this year’s extended winter break. Running Dec. 7 through Jan. 24, the winter intersession courses are delivered entirely online and feature introductory, advanced-level, and elective courses across several academic programs, including business, criminal justice, psychology, community health, and wellness, applied computing, and studio arts. Business ethics, creative writing, health policy and finance, public speaking, statistics, human development, and drawing are only a few of the winter courses available online in either three- or six-week sessions.
The expanded winter course catalog offers students a unique opportunity to complete up to nine credits over the break. Justin Cochran ’21, a communication major, will use the winter intersession to complete his credit requirement and graduate in December instead of May. “I have always been interested in taking a winter course, but I never actually got around to do it until my senior year,” he says. “I only had one class left to graduate and realized that if I took a winter course, I could graduate a whole semester early.”
The upperclassman is taking Sociology of Pop Culture. “I have always been interested in this topic, so I think it will be a nice way to end my academic career at Curry,” he adds. After graduating, Cochran hopes to work as a multimedia content creator on the West Coast.
Registration for winter courses is open now. For more information on course offerings, descriptions, and tuition, visit the winter intersession webpage.
