The Academic Program


Half-Semester Courses

Some departments offer half-credit, half-semester courses that run for seven weeks on a normal class schedule. These courses, which are as in-depth and as fast-paced as full semester courses, provide students with an opportunity to sample a wider variety of fields and topics as they explore the curriculum (see Focus Courses in “Academic Opportunities”). Note that half-semester courses follow registration deadlines that differ slighty from full semester courses.
