I don’t know why this isn’t a bigger deal on the interwebs, but you can now take nine Yale Summer Session courses for full Yale credit in Summer 2012. The courses are:
SESSION A (June 4-July 6)
ENGL S220E Milton, John Rogers
MUSI S265E Jazz and Race in America, Tom Duffy
PSYC S110E Introduction to Psychology, Kristina Olson
PSYC S171E Sex, Evolution, and Human Nature, Laurie Santos
SESSION B (July 9-August 10)
ECON S285E The Welfare Economics of Public Policy, Don Brown
ENVE S105E Introduction to Green Energy, Yehia Khalil
MUSI S120E Listening to Classical Music, Craig Wright
PHIL S152E Moralities of Everyday Life, Paul Bloom
PLSC S394E/MMES S481E Introduction to Middle East Politics, Ellen Lust
Note that you’ll have to pay for these classes, so they’ll put you back a few thousand dollars, but it’s still a huge move for the University. You can take free online courses through Open Yale Courses, but to the best of my knowledge, this is Yale’s first serious entry into for-profit long-distance learning. I wonder who is driving this initiative, and whether there’re any plans to extend the program into the academic year.
