Get ahead with summer classes in Delaware . . . or anywhere

Catch up on credits. Get ahead to graduate early. Explore a special topic, from wood design to wine making to the business of sport. Or fulfill a requirement in five weeks instead of 15.

Everyone has reasons to take a class or two during the five-week summer session. And now there's one more big reason: For the first time, OWU is offering six summer classes that are completely online. You can take them from anywhere in the world.

Nearly 50 other classes will be offered on the OWU campus, including Black Family, Logic, Intro to Film, Hitler & Nazi Germany, and many more.

Classes begin May 16, 2016, and end June 17, 2016, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the summer, with the satisfaction that you put another credit or two in the bank. And tuition for summer classes is only about half the price of fall or spring classes.
