TennesseeTech Offering more Online Courses This Summer

Provost Lori Bruce said the online classes fit well with summer schedules while easing class loads in fall and spring.

“In the summer they want a little more flexibility,” Bruce said. “And sometimes they want to live at home but still take a summer class. Or work around a travel schedule or a work schedule. And sometimes those online classes give them that more flexibility and convenience.

Bruce said the highest demand for online courses comes from graduate students who have schedules filled with both work and studies. Bruce said about half of Tech’s graduate courses are online.

Bruce said although Tech offers less courses in the summer, they have a selection of 900 course sections including 400 unique courses.

“From English to Business Communications to Civil Engineering to Music Appreciation,” Bruce said. “So it’s a very wide variety.”

Bruce said July courses are still open for enrollment and will be available until June 28. She said sometimes students need a little break after spring session but maybe by second session they start thinking about getting more work done.

“Some of those undergraduates want to knock out a course or two in the summer so that their schedule is a little lighter in the following fall or spring,” Bruce said.

Bruce said Tech historically has more enrollment in the second summer session than the first summer session.
