Summer sessions at Kent State give students the opportunity to get some classes out of the way and to catch up, get ahead or stay on track to graduate. While some students might cringe at the thought of taking summer classes, others take advantage of the chance to complete a few courses in six or eight weeks as opposed to the fifteen-week semester during the school year.
This summer, the College of Communication and Information is offering over 30 courses that span across all four schools: Communication Studies, Journalism & Mass Communication, Library & Information Science and Visual Communication Design. Courses are offered both in-person and online, giving students the option to choose the best learning environment for their needs. CCI is offering courses at all levels, from 10000-level introductory classes to 40000-level senior seminars. Don’t think these courses are all work and no play; JMC is offering summer film courses about Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler, and zombie movies.
There are three summer sessions with courses offered during each session. Summer I runs June 9 – July 12, lasting six weeks; Summer II runs June 9 – August 2, lasting eight weeks; and Summer III runs July 14 – August 16, lasting six weeks. The last day to add courses for Summer I is tomorrow, Thursday, June 12, so be sure to sign up now if you are interested in taking a CCI course this summer!
