Bluefield University to Offer Winter Break Courses

by | Dec 2, 2021

Bluefield, VA – Bluefield University will launch its Fall III term beginning December 13. The four-week accelerated term gives students the opportunity to take up to 9 credits (3 courses) between semesters. The Fall III term allows students to engage in study outside their normal academic program.

Courses are open to current, new, and visiting students. The courses run from December 13 – January 9 allowing semester-long courses to be completed in four weeks. Sixteen courses will be offered during the Fall III Term including general studies in literature, college algebra, political science, and more.

Other unique courses offered will include a football coaching course that allows individuals to learn the basics of football with the Bluefield University football staff. History buffs can take advantage of a course on gladiators and Olympians. Theatre appreciation and personal wellness will also be offered.

In addition, BU’s Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) will provide academic support for students during the Fall Term III. Students may contact ACE by email at [email protected]. Available services include Grammarly for writing support and SmartThinking for course specific support.

“Winter term is a great time for a student to try online learning for the first time,” said Dr. Patricia Neely, BU Executive VP for Online & Distance Education. “It also offers students who are trying to graduate sooner the option to earn up to 9 credits toward graduation. We welcome students from other colleges, dual enrollment students, and community members who would like to take a college course over the Christmas break.”
