Registration for Summer School 2022 is now open to students from the University of Lynchburg and other colleges. Sessions begin May 23 and end July 22.
The biggest news in 2022: Study abroad is back.
Assistant Professor of Criminology Dan Murphy is taking 18 students to London, England, and Edinburgh, Scotland, for 10 days, while Professor of Political Science and International Relations Dr. Marek Payerhin is taking 16 students to Iceland for two weeks.
Declan Pratt, director of the Center for Global Education, is excited to offer students an opportunity to gain new perspectives at an affordable price.
“With the help of these faculty, we’ve put these 2022 trips together in-house, which means that the students are getting to study abroad for far less than it would usually have cost,” Pratt said.
The criminology trip will cost students $2,600 per person, he added, rather than the original price of $4,195, while the Iceland trip will cost $3,600 rather than $4,695.
Pratt hopes more students will take advantage of Lynchburg’s study abroad opportunities in the future.
While registration for the U.K. and Iceland programs is now closed, students may still apply for study away this summer. There’s a dinosaur dig in Wyoming, for example, and an exercise physiology trip to Yellowstone National Park.
“We have a variety of scholarships available, including needs-based, social media-related, and scholarships specifically for minority students,” Pratt said.
“All these scholarships have more funds than usual since they haven’t been depleted in the last couple of years so, again, these 2022 programs are more affordable than ever.”
Other summer school courses include internships and a host of undergraduate and graduate online options. From introductory classes in the arts, business, and health sciences to advanced courses in psychology and political science, there’s something for everyone.
“Summer sessions yield great opportunities to fulfill graduation requirements or take classes that one may have been interested in but could not fit into one’s schedule,” said Associate Provost Dr. Chip Walton.
“Summer also allows students the chance to focus exclusively on one or two classes in a way that may not be feasible during the regular academic year.”
