Mini-courses are special, short-term, interdisciplinary credit courses developed by University faculty, staff or students, with the advice and consent of a faculty member, to meet specific, current needs or interests not covered in the regular curricula. They are free of charge to all full-time undergraduate students and graduate students. They are also open to part-time and non-UD students for credit or audit. Mini-courses carry between 1/2 of one semester hour of credit up to three semester hours of credit. Classes can be in various sequences, extending over several weeks or concentrated within a few days. Some mini-courses take the form of workshops. Occurring at various times in the year, students may add mini-courses to their schedules anytime during the term. Here is a sample listing of mini-courses.
