To boost enrollment this summer, Behavioral Sciences “added some in-class courses that students need to graduate and simplified our schedule,” Department Head Anne Edwards said.

Notably, schedule simplification took the form of reorganizing courses that met three times a week into twice-weekly scheduled instruction to better accommodate busy student schedules.

So in-class courses for the current, eight-week Module II have met either Mondays & Wednesdays or Tuesdays & Thursdays (9 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. or 1 p.m. to 3:50 p.m.).

The result? “Undergraduate students registered for 211 more credit hours in our department than last year,” Edwards said.
