This winter, as appealing as it may seem, don’t spend your entire break sitting in your PJs watching Keeping up with the Kardashians. Spend it in your PJs exploring hip hop as a political movement and getting three credits for it.
Want to take public speaking online? Sure thing. Want to knock out that calculus course in just four weeks? Also not a problem. Interested in exploring the role of animals in our society, politics and the Colbert/Stewart effect, or the relationships between literature and film? All you’ve gotta do is register for January Intersession 2013.
Courses are offered in subject areas including art, biology, communications, criminal justice, environmental science, history, literature, mathematics, psychology, women’s studies, and more, and are completed in just four short weeks online beginning on January 2.
Registration begins on Monday, November 5.
So when your parents nag you to get off the computer and change into “real people clothes,” you can tell them you decided to get a jumpstart on the year.
