New winter academic session to be offered in January 2024

Earlham College is giving students greater flexibility in completing their degrees as part of a new online winter session in January 2024.

Classes run from January 2-19 and will be taught by Earlham’s nationally recognized teaching faculty. 

“We designed this winter session with student success and retention in mind,” said Rick Stephens, Earlham College interim provost and vice president of academic affairs. “Students can get ahead on their credits, catch up if they fall behind or spread out their course load to create greater flexibility in managing their future pursuits on campus.”

Registration runs from November 14 to December 8 for current students and non-matriculating students seeking to resume progress on their degree. Undergraduate students from other colleges and universities wishing to enroll must complete the visiting student online application and provide a copy of their unofficial transcript.

Courses include: 

  • Medical terminology (ANCS 199);
  • Introduction to creative writing (ENG 221);
  • Earth and the environment (GEOL 201);
  • Archaeological theory, method and practice (MUSE 114);
  • Psychology of women (PSYC 364/WGSS 364); and
  • Spanish for social justice: Intermediate Spanish II (SPAN 202).

“This is an opportunity to learn in a highly focused environment by becoming immersed in a single subject,” Earlham Registrar Corinne Deibel said. “Many of these courses fulfill Earlham’s general education requirements and will have broad appeal to students no matter their major or academic interest.”

Students enrolled in winter term will have remote access to the same support services available during the fall and spring semesters, including the library, writing center, instructional technologies team, and information technology services.
