Winter Intersession

Winter Intersession Term:  December 18, 2017 through January 13, 2018

The time between the end of fall semester and the beginning of spring semester provides an opportunity for eligible students to enroll in one of ten Winter Intersession courses. This opportunity allows students to meet their educational goals by allowing them to focus on one subject area. 

The delivery of these undergraduate and graduate courses will be in a variety of modes from face to face, online or blended. The options include a study abroad trip to explore the relationship between theatre and religion in ancient Roman to a blended honor’s seminar on Metaliteracy & Research for the Modern Scholar to an online graduate class in Health Communication.

The University of Toledo is offering 10 short-term credit classes, some starting December 18, 2017 and others beginning January 2, 2018 all ending by January 13, 2018. 

Accelerate your path to a degree by earning credits over winter break.

Winter Term Course Offerings:

The objective of this course is to review many of the principles and applications of statistics in chemistry and biochemistry as well as biology with the main purpose of preparing undergraduate students for experimental research.  The focus will be placed on   topics including the application of descriptive statistics (i.e. range, standard deviation), inferential statistics (i.e. s.e.m., confidence interval, P value), as well as use of statistics and data management software such as OriginPro. A special emphasis will be given to improve the data analysis and presentation skills. Students will be required to discuss peer reviewed scientific literature and identify the strengths and weaknesses of the employed statistical approaches.

HEAL 3600 - Prevention and Control of Disease
CRN# 80006
3 credit hour (nine face-to-face meetings)
Course runs: 1/2/2018-1/13/2018

HON 4960 - Honors Seminar: Metaliteracy & Research for the Modern Scholar
CRN# 80004
3 credit hour (blended)
Course runs: 12/18/2017-1/12/2018

Whether in our academic pursuits or in daily life, we are surrounded by a complex information environment. Metaliteracy is the set of critical analysis and production skills that help us navigate that work. For example, who owns information or can it be owned? How can social media define us or expose us? How does ready access to an (over) abundance of information change how we think and function? In addition, while each discipline has its own way of doing research, good research skills are universal. This seminar will provide skills in information gathering and access useful for in-depth exploration in your own field, and the seminar may serve as a stepping-stone for students embarking on their honor thesis project and eventually graduate school.

MATH 1330 – Trigonometry
CRN# 80008

3 credit hour (blended)
Course runs: 12/18/2017-1/13/2018

This course will help students develop mathematical skills with emphasis on problems requiring the use of trigonometric functions. Curriculum will cover the definitions and graphs of trigonometric functions and their inverses, solving trigonometric equations, applications and topics in analytic geometry.

NURS 4350 - Transition to BSN Practice
CRN# 80015

2 credit hour (online, days off for holidays)
