Liberal Arts Offers Summer School Courses Online (LASSO)

The College of Liberal Arts is pleased to announce new online classes for the summer of 2012. Students can choose from classes in almost all general education categories. Classes will be offered during the full summer term (May 30 – July 25) and will be taught completely online by university faculty members. The Liberal Arts Summer School Online (LASSO) will be ideal for students who need flexible summer schedules, especially those who may be away from Oxford but who still wish to take a summer class. This is the perfect opportunity to catch up on your required coursework or to move even closer to on-time graduation. A brief description for each class, including credit hours and registration information, can be found on the LASSO page (PDF).
