The inaugural winter session includes 32 virtual course offerings, including music appreciation, hospitality and tourism management, Africana studies, Spanish, sociology, urban affairs and planning, and women’s and gender studies.
The abroad options include programs in Senegal, the Dominican Republic, London, Spain and New Zealand.
