Course Promotion: EDU 300-009: Multicultural Perspectives

A new course is being offered from the College of Education titled EDU 300-009 Special Course: Multicultural Perspectives. This course is ideal for students seeking a 3 credit hour elective at the 300+ level. The course will examine multicultural and international K-12 education from different perspectives. Opportunities will be offered to observe and participate in activities at local schools with diverse and international student populations. Open to any student from any major, but especially recommended for those interested in international education or diversity.

Registration and History (Spring 2018 Courses)

Every year around this time, I try to reach out to advisors across campus.  I'm a bit late in getting this out this time around, but I wanted to pass along some resources that could be helpful to both you and your advisees for Spring registration.
