Online Education Courses at Shorter University Offer Students Convenient Way to Complete Beginning Requirements
Students planning on majoring in Education in college can get a head start on their beginning education program requirements through a series of online classes offered this summer through Shorter University’s School of Education.
EDU 2110: Investigating Critical and Contemporary Issues in Education will be offered in May with EDU 2120: Exploring Socio-Cultural Perspectives on Diversity in Educational Settings offered in June and EDU 2130: Exploring Teaching and Learning offered in July.
“Students will be able to complete the sequence of three required courses (2110, 2120 and 2130) in three consecutive terms, all with the convenience of online,” said Dr. Norma Harper, Dean of Shorter’s School of Education.
Students will benefit from small class sizes as they take courses taught by full-time professors with doctorates rather than adjuncts or graduate assistants. Classes are also taught through a Biblical worldview. In addition, students who wish to enroll in these courses will receive individual attention from an enrollment counselor as they complete the application process.
Each of the courses requires a minimum 2.5 grade point average, acceptable background check, and liability insurance. Students will need to earn a C or better in EDU 2110 in order to enroll in 2120 or 2130.
Field experiences are required for both EDU 2110 and 2120, and EDU 2130 requires a case study. Field experience sites and locations may vary but must be approved by the professor of the course at the appropriate time of the course, Dr. Harper added.
“A recent background check is mandatory,” Dr. Harper said. The background check must be submitted to and approved by the Dean of Shorter’s School of Education prior to the first day of classes.
To apply for the courses, non-Shorter students should visit www.shorter.edu and select the “Apply Now” link to complete the Online Degree Programs application, selecting “Non-Degree Seeking” as the program of choice. Once the application is submitted, an enrollment counselor will contact the student with additional information or documentation needed to complete the application process. Non-degree seeking students must submit official college transcripts or an approved Transient Letter from their enrolled institution.
