Seventeen EasternOnline Courses Start July 12

Hey, it is so hot that you might want to take a summer course from the comfort of your air conditioned home!  There are 17 EasternOnline courses that begin next Monday, July 12.  Use this summer to take courses that satisfy your general education requirements or even a major course.  There are some really appealing online courses such as THE 277  Computerized Drafting (or how to create 3D images) which meets the Tier II Applied Information Technology requirement.    You can meet your Tier II Cultural Perspectives requirement by taking ART 360 American Art online.  BUS 365, Business Report Writing, can be used by BGS students to meet your Writing Intensive requirement.  One specialty course that is very interesting is SWK 369, Exploring Gambling Problems.  It is open to anyone and can be used by BGS Human Services majors for the major concentration.

What does hybrid mean?  That's a course that partially in the classroom and partially online.  The New Hybrid Course is
EES 201 Global Climate Change and it starts on July 12.  This course will be on Monday evenings and online Wednesdays and Fridays.

What better time to study Global Climate Change than this summer!!

In the last 50 years the temperature and the composition of the Earth's atmosphere has changed, likely due to human activity. These changes affect our lives, the natural world and the global economy.  Can we effectively meet the challenges presented by natural and anthropogenic ("manmade") climate change? Can  we overcome them and even benefit from these changes How does the  history of climate change help us to understand the future? What was the cause of dinosaurs' extinction and Vikings' decay? These and many other questions will be discussed in this extremely dynamic class. You will be watching videos and developing skills in critical thinking, reading for comprehension, and oral and written communication. Welcome to the "Global Climate Change" summer class.


Register now for this exciting course that delves into the changes of our planet! For more information, visit or call
