Big reasons to take a minimester class

Taking a minimester course allows you to complete a college class in less than a month!

If you are looking to get ahead, are behind on credits, or are just getting started, a minimester class is a great option to consider.

Registration is now open. Minimester classes begin Monday, Dec. 17.

BHC student Abbie Wadsworth of Silvis likes taking minimester classes because it helps split up the credit hours she needs each year over more time.

She noted that the classes are time consuming with a lot of material covered during the three weeks, but having a smaller course load helps make it manageable.

“Minimester classes are very fast-paced and you have to make sure you keep up on your work, but it’s worth it at the end,” she said. “It sounds like a lot but it’s definitely achievable.”

There is a variety of online minimester classes you can take, and they include courses in these subjects:

  • Biology (medical terminology)
  • Business
  • Business law
  • Computer science
  • Health information technology
  • History
  • Music
  • Physical education
  • Sociology
  • Speech

Minimester courses are included in the Spring 2019 class schedule at www.bhc.edu/schedules.

While online classes are not easier, they can be more convenient and they save you the time of a commute. With an online minimester class, you won’t have to miss a thing because of bad weather or traveling.
