Busy schedule? Here are several one-credit courses that might fit
We’re going to say something that might be shocking coming from a college: sometimes, you just can’t fit another three-credit course into your schedule. Maybe Professor Goldbaum’s photography class happened at the same time another class did, and you still want the chance to work with him. Or maybe you really want to get your hands dirty with video editing and can’t sacrifice your Media Ethics time.
Thankfully, the Reynolds School has got your back. We’re offering a solid handful of one-credit courses that will help you reach that credit requirement without cutting into your First Amendment research assignment. Many of these courses are just for the weekend, making them perfect for busy schedules.
Course hours are Friday from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon unless indicated.
