Offered in weeklong sessions during June and July at our main campus in Ashland, Ohio, our convenient intensive summer courses let you focus on your studies free from the distractions of home.
While at Ashland, you are immersed in an academic community of scholars and fellow students who share a common interest in the study of the American experience. Learning takes place all across campus, from the classroom to the dining hall. Housing, meals, and complimentary airport shuttle service are available.
During the fall and spring semesters, study with leading historians and political scientists in our live, interactive virtual classroom. Using a standard computer and a broadband internet connection, students and professors see, hear, and speak to each other in real-time.
Unlike typical “online” courses taught via recorded lectures and bulletin board posts, Live Online offers small class sizes, active discussions between students and faculty, and the ability to ask questions and get immediate answers just like a traditional classroom.
