Not sure if online courses are actually legit? Meet Semester Online, the only online program of its kind that provides undergrads with a virtual classroom experience from prestigious colleges and universities like Boston College, Emory University, Northwestern University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Notre Dame, and Washington University in St. Louis.
Whether you’re taking time off from school to travel, work, or deal with personal stuff, Semester Online helps you stay on track to graduate (no matter where you are in college) by letting you take accredited courses online from these institutions, even if you’re not enrolled in that college. The courses are taught by the same professors and use the same curricula as the in-person courses, so you’re not sacrificing any of the quality of an in-person college course, plus each has fewer than 20 students so you still get lots of interaction with students and professors.
The courses use a live virtual discussion and lots of other tools to make interaction possible, so even though you’re taking the course online, nothing about the experience feels flat.
The course selection is awesome too, with courses like “Shakespeare and Film” and “How To Rule the World”—sign us up! When picking classes, you can check out the professor’s profile, course start and end dates and “meeting” times, how many students are enrolled, and more, so you can design the educational experience that’s right for you. And even if you are currently enrolled in college this semester, you can still use Semester Online courses to beef up your credits or allow you to take a class that your school doesn’t offer—like taking an “Integrated Marketing Communications” course from Northwestern if you attend a liberal arts school, or taking a “Baseball and American Culture” course from Emory if you go to a school that only offers business courses.
