Roanoke College is pleased to offer an exciting array of courses this summer.

Why Enroll in Summer Session?
Your enrollment in Roanoke College's Summer Session may allow you to examine a variety of subject areas, get an early start on your college career, accelerate your present program of study, or have the opportunity to improve your GPA by studying in a small-class environment. Also, it might allow you to attend a later term with a reduced academic course load. Fulfilling entrance requirements for professional schools and renewing teaching certificates are other excellent reasons for attending the Summer Session. Because classes are offered at varied times, you have flexibility in scheduling your classes, with ample hours for study and recreation. Note that courses are available in two four-week terms and one eight-week term. Thus, many course options are possible.

Offerings from the General Education Curriculum are under the subject "INQ".  Check the list from beginning to end so you don't miss courses of interest!
