Convenient 7-Week Format

Summer courses are offered in Carthage’s convenient 7-week accelerated format, providing flexibility for busy adults, professionals, parents, and traditional students. Classes are held on campus in the evenings, meeting for three hours one night a week for seven weeks. Courses are delivered in an innovative “hybrid” design, combining face-to-face class sessions with online learning opportunities.

* Please note: Due to the accelerated format of the summer courses, there will be homework due on the first night of class. Be sure to check Schoology and your Carthage email a week in advance of the course beginning so you do not fall behind. *
