This summer, Seton Hall is inviting students -- from teens to adult learners – to Try Something New! It's a chance for all of us to take a break from our typical year-round routines and re-energize, retool and refresh. Take advantage of new prospects and develop leading-edge skills to remain professionally competitive.
"At Seton Hall University, we have such a diversity of summer course offerings. Perhaps you are a pre-college student hoping to get a jumpstart on your college career. Maybe you are a current or visiting undergraduate or graduate student wanting to fit in those classes taught by top faculty. Our summer sessions enable you to move ahead along your graduation path and fulfill your occupational goals," said Karen Passaro, J.D., Dean of the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies at Seton Hall.
"So many of our web-based classes are available for those wanting flexibility in their summer schedule. For those who want to combine coursework with world travel, we have International Study Abroad classes providing a first-hand global education destination. And we have offerings for adult professional learners wanting to advance their career and leadership skills," explained Dean Passaro. Pre-College offerings – for rising high school juniors and seniors – engage students in rigorous university-level coursework while earning college credit at a greatly discounted rate of three credits for $1500. Examples of subjects available include Oral Communication, Microeconomics and Introduction to Psychology.
For high school students seeking a college experience in the sciences, the University's Giant Leap Program offers advanced hands-on experience to prepare students for the world of science research.
And for college students who "live" the sciences and mathematics and see the summer as a chance to get a head start, many gravitate to intro to biology, human anatomy and physiology, cell biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, finite mass with calculus for business, statistics for science majors, physics, and astronomy.
Students may also enroll in a wide variety of campus offerings from Media Law to the Search for Human Fulfillment, and from the History of Philosophy to Real Estate Finance. They also can use this time to explore emerging fields both on campus and on the web such as Mobile App Development and Supply Chain Management.
Some popular undergraduate web-based courses include Forensic Biology for undergrads interested in the sciences. World History, Western Civilization, American History and the History of African Civilization, American Art, Theater as Cultural Dialogue, Principles of Marketing, Data Analysis, Great American Speeches of Our Time, and International Finance Institutions also appeal to students looking for course flexibility.
Graduate students in the Stillman School of Business can register for Essential of Federal Taxation and Portfolio Analysis. Additional graduate courses taking place this summer include Spirituality and the Old Testament, Reputation Management, and Comparative Foreign Policy.
Among the numerous faith-based web courses available are Creation and Science, Spiritual Transformation, Introduction to Catholic Theology and Christian Ethics.
Summer is a time to learn face-to-face with new cultures and world-class faculty. Explore Chinese language and culture in Nanjing. Immerse yourself in the life of Rome and the culture of Italy or study French language and culture at the Sorbonne in Paris. The summer program in Rabat, Morocco offers an exploration of the cultural and historical intersections of North Africa, the Middle East and Granada, Spain. The Tokyo, Japan exchange with Sophia University provides an introduction to a broad range of issues in Japan and Asia including language, society, economics, business, culture, religions, history and literature. Students interested in visiting Latin America will be inspired by a study abroad experience in Nicaragua, where they will explore the intersection of communication, religion and culture in Managua, Granada and Leon.
