Spring Online History Courses Now Available!

Two great History courses offered through the Integrated Social Sciences program have just become available for registration by on-campus students! For on-campus students, these will be so-called “group start” courses that are synched up with the regular quarter dates and require the supplemental fee of $350 to cover UWEO’s costs. Like all ISS courses, these History courses are taught by regular UW faculty. It’s a great option for students who want to continue their studies but can’t be on campus this quarter.
