Moravian College Offering Courses During New Winter Term

Bethlehem, Pa., December 12, 2012 –An innovative way to learn something new during winter break is being rolled out this year. A mix of courses will be offered during Winter Term for students who may be a credit or two shy of graduating, want to get a little ahead of the game, or are simply looking for something different to keep intellectually engaged over break.

Registration is open for Winter Term, which will run from January 2 through January 11, 2013. Courses include: What do I say to avoid offense? Working with people with disabilities; business writing; program music; crime fiction and fact in Navajoland; Globalization and global social movements; and music, memory & language. Course descriptions are available online.

“This is not like the old January Term,” explains Carol Traupman-Carr, dean of curriculum and academic programs. “The former January Term (which was offered until 1994) was a month long, and students earned a full unit of credit in classes that didn’t run during a normal fall or spring term.”

“For our winter session, which runs only 10 days from our re-opening at the start of the New Year until classes resume for the spring term, we have half-unit/2-credit hour courses only,” Traupman-Carr noted. “Two of the offerings are online offerings, while the others are "traditional" face-to-face offerings, though in a much accelerated schedule."

Six courses are being offered during the winter term, open to any current Moravian student, however because of the accelerated nature of the courses, students may enroll in only one class per Winter Term. Courses are $636.50 per class, plus a technology fee. In addition, any junior or senior with an overall QPA of 2.70 qualified to register for an internship or independent study during the Winter Term, instead of enrolling in one of the six course advertised.
