With our unique and convenient program, you will take one course at a time with breaks built into the class schedule and an online class in July.

During your first summer:

  • Face-to-face courses meeting two times per week for three weeks in May and June
  • One online course during July (no face-to-face meetings in July)
  • Week off following Memorial Day weekend and two week break between your 2nd and 3rd class

During the second summer:

  • Two online courses during May and June

Students who wish to complete a master’s degree in education may take education classes during the fall and spring semesters to graduate after the second summer!
