Classroom Courses - Winter Term

Alvernia University winter classes are designed with busy adults in mind. Taught in seminar format, the courses often include the opportunity for students to share their experiences on the given topic. Expert faculty instructors use these discussions, as well as lectures and other assignments, to enrich the classroom experience.

With our winter class options, you will be able to balance college with work, family and the rest of your life with this two week accelerated format. Classes will start on January 3, 2011 and end on January 14, 2011. All course instruction will be during class, which meets MTWRF from 5:30 – 10:00 p.m. for two weeks (or from 5:30 – 10:40 p.m. in the case of MAT 208-W1).
