Winter Term

Complete a class in three weeks -- KWC Winter Term 2014!


What's it all about?

January 2–25, 2014, could be epic for Kentucky Wesleyan College students.

For three short weeks, you get to take the college classes you'll remember for a lifetime, the classes that aren't requirements for your major, the classes that you'll write home about (literally), the classes that are the reason you came to college. And you get to do it all at half the normal tuition rate.

We created Winter Term to let professors and students get out of their traditional class routines and have an adventure or two. Classes change every year -- in 2014, try Leadership Through Sailing (in the Virgin Islands, on a working sailboat), tropical marine biology in South Florida (travel to South Florida required), or jump into another culture with an international studies trip to Costa Rica or Rome/Athens.

If international travel isn't your thing, we've got other options right here in Owensboro. Physics and the Arts (the math is easy), Rock and Roll; Its Influence on Society (Music) or Russian History to 1900 all promise to be great.

The point? You can have fun and earn credit all at the same time with a winter term class at KWC. Plus, the price is half off. Seriously.

So if you need an extra class to graduate on time or if you want credits at a reduced rate or if you just want to broaden your horizons and have some fun, check out KWC Winter Term 2014 for a world of possibilities.
