By popular demand, Brookdale’s convenient Fall 11-Week term offerings have expanded, more than doubling the original course selection. And it’s not too late to register.
Did Hurricane Irene overwhelm the end of your summer? Are you finally seeing an end to all that drying out and cleaning up? Is the sun at long last peeking out behind leaves that are just beginning to turn? Now it’s time to revisit those fall plans that were put on hold and get your start at Brookdale.
“It’s been a challenging September and students of all ages have the opportunity to still enroll in fall classes with the October 4 start date for the shorter term,” said Dr. Dianna Phillips, Executive Vice President-Education Services.
The offerings now include expanded selections from computer science, criminal justice, economics, English composition, American literature, fitness, world civilization, a selection of math classes from developmental to advanced levels, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, reading, sociology and speech.
Although the classes begin in October, the term still ends December 21, the same time the traditional 15-week semester finishes. The only difference is the scheduling. Class meeting time is slightly longer to make up for the later start but still have the same total semester hours.
