Winter SessionIt seems like the school year just began, but the end of the semester is starting to creep up on us. During this time, students are beginning to decide what they want to do during their winter break. If you have no plans, or even if you do, consider taking an online course during your time off! Winter courses allow students to stay on track or get ahead by providing them with a flexible and beneficial learning experience while learning valuable skills such as time management and goal setting. These courses run from December 21 through January 12 can fulfill requirements for your major or allow you to maximize your time with an interesting course! Below are a few, but not all, of the courses you can take this winter!

Econ 102 & 103: Economics 102 and 103 are courses that many majors on campus require for graduation. ECON 102 (Microeconomics) offers an introduction to the functions of individualistic decision makers, both consumers and producers, within the larger economic systems. ECON 103 (Macroeconomics) provides students with a much broader overview of economics including an introduction to the theory of determination of total or aggregate income, employment, output, price levels, and the role of money in the economy. If you’re looking to get one of these courses out of the way, or simply want to take an interesting and useful general education class, consider taking one of these this winter break.
