8 fall courses for finishing college quickly

Online class
A few weeks ago, we shared the advantages that summer courses offer to you when you’re aiming to power through your degree program quickly.

A great way to apply this momentum to the Fall term is by checking out some of our 6-week courses.

What is a 6-week course?

The full Fall term is 12-weeks long. However, this Fall we will feature a small selection of 6-week courses that run within the regular Fall term. This allows you to take back-to-back 6-week courses, one at a time, within the full Fall term.

What are the benefits?

Taking two classes per term can be tough if you have a busy schedule, but it’s absolutely necessary if you have an ambitious timeline for finishing your degree.

The 6-week classes make this do-able.

Instead of balancing two classes with different week-to-week expectations, you can put all of your attention into just one course at a time. Applying your full-focus into just one course can help you in several ways:

Staying organized

Have you ever mixed up the course requirements when taking multiple courses… Maybe one instructor wants you to post to Moodle twice a week, and the other requires three posts? We’re human. We make mistakes, but boy does it make you feel small when you've made a mix up! One benefit of the 6-week courses is that there’s just one syllabus for you to consult. It minimizes the risk for confusing your requirements and allows you stay organized.

Staying engaged

No matter what, college is a huge investment and you want to get the most out of your experience. If you’re stretched thin and you’re putting everything you got into just complete your assignments each week, you might notice that you’re losing out on that ever-so-import reflection time.

You want the opportunity to connect with the subject matter on a deeper level and get the most out of your learning experience. That’s why you’re here.

When you enroll in two 6-week courses, you gain the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the course topic. You can take your learning to a whole new level!

What courses are you offering as 6-week courses?

Great question! What we have done is schedule courses in four of GSC’s most popular areas: Psychology, Management, and Healthcare. We also feature a pairing of General Education requirements in the 6-week courses.
