Feb. 26, 2021

Summer Term
More than 20 Summer Term courses are being offered through a combination of virtual and in-person formats for current students, high school juniors and seniors, alumni, community members and others.

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Current Illinois Wesleyan University students, high school juniors and seniors, alumni, community members and others are invited to enroll in the University’s Summer Term courses.

This year's offerings are significantly expanded relative to last year's, and the University will be using both a June and July session. At present, more than 20 summer courses are listed, and it is possible that a few additional courses will be added between now and summer. Taught by Illinois Wesleyan faculty, courses cover a wide range of topics and disciplines –– from Spanish to calculus to dog psychology.

Many of the courses will be offered online and can be taken remotely, but some will be delivered as in-person, HyFlex or hybrid course options for those who would like to study in Bloomington-Normal this summer. HyFlex courses allow students to fully participate either in person or remotely and switch modes as needed, while hybrid courses implement a mixture of in-person and online activities.

Associate Provost Becky Roesner, who is among those organizing the Summer Term, remarked that she is, “delighted to see some of the University's most creative and well-subscribed courses making their summer debut. In addition to serving the needs of current students, the online summer offerings provide new opportunities for alumni to reconnect with their alma mater and for prospective students to experience our outstanding faculty.”
