High school juniors and seniors looking for a way to earn college credits outside of the Advanced Placement curriculum can look no further.
Niagara University's Office of Continuing Education is offering all students entering the 11th and 12th grades in fall 2011 the opportunity to spend time in a college setting, learn from some of the best instructors on campus and, perhaps most importantly, earn valuable credit hours by completing just one week of summer classes.
The NU Summer Academy is a program designed specifically for busy high school juniors and seniors who want to get a head start on their college careers. Participants will attend classes, hear from guest speakers, go on field trips and take part in experiential learning opportunities.
American Sign Language (ASL 100), introduction to sociology (SOC 101) and introduction to hospitality (HRT 100) are available for the week of July 11-15, while courses in forensic chemistry (CHE 108), theater appreciation (THR 130) and computer architecture will be offered July 18-22.
Each three credit hour course will take one week to complete. Classes are held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Courses are $595 each for day students or $895 for those wishing to reside on campus. The cost includes all class fees, meals and field trips and, in the case of resident students, accommodations, linens and evening activities.
