619 students from 36 states, 2 territories and 19 countries participated in Discover the World of Communication during summer 2019.
Each online class would consist of 7 modules. Each module will take about 3 hours to complete (including some of the time the students need to do their work). The class will be delivered as an asynchronous class, which means you can take the class any time of day or night no matter where in the world you are located. We will try our best to make these as hands-on and experiential as we can, given the constraints that one may need to complete their work from home. Classes begin June 18 2022 until August 15, 2020. The students will access the material through Canvas and submit work through Canvas. Seven of the classes are non-credit and one of the classes, Public Speaking, is a college level 1 credit course.
The classes are taught by American Univeristy faculty and working professionals.
Create a resume worthy news article, video, flash fiction writing, screenplay as well as work from your portfolio that may be used for college admissions, internships, and your own enjoyment. You will also receive a DWC certificate for each non-credit class completed and an AU transcript for the 1-credit Public Speaking course. This information can be used on your college applications.
The online classes will be available on June 18th. To be able to start by June 18th you must be registered by June 1st.
It is possible to take as many as four classes on campus and up to eight classes online. Online courses consist of seven lessons of about three hours of work.
