“The pandemic has changed many individual’s and families’ schedules this summer. It’s a good time to get a jumpstart on college, stay on track toward your degree, or take that class you’ve always wanted to take,” said Corinne Hansen, director of University & Community Relations.

Business courses such as Production/Operations Management and Business Finance would be good summer course choices for professionals looking for continuing education.

“If your job situation has changed due to the pandemic, with time off, furloughs, or remote work, let’s talk through other career options and pathways you can find with a degree from BHSU. We offer associates, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in a variety of fields,” Crawford said. “Or maybe taking a class or two will give you a jump-start on a new skill or advancement in your field.”

Need a mental break from COVID-19 coverage? Take a one-month course in Art Appreciation or Drawing through BHSU. Music Appreciation is also offered online this summer.

Dr. Courtney Huse Wika, a former Distinguished Faculty award winner and associate professor of English, will teach Women in Literature June 22-July 17.

“This class will provide a four-week sampling of the rich body of women’s writing from the 19th century to the present. Get ready for women’s art from Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ to contemporary texts like Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’,” Huse Wika said.

Perhaps the COVID-19 pandemic has sparked your interest in the human immune system. BHSU is offering the Immunology course online from May 26-July 17.

The university is also encouraging those who will be high school juniors or seniors in the fall, and those planning to attend college, to take courses that will transfer to the college of their choice.
