Mini-courses are special, short-term, interdisciplinary credit courses developed by University faculty (or sometimes by students with the advice and consent of a faculty member) to meet specific, highly current needs or interests not covered in the regular curricula. They are free of charge to all full-time students, even if the course puts them over the full-time limit, and are open to part-time and non-UD students for credit or audit. The typical mini-course carries one semester hour of credit or fifteen class hours. 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, mini-courses are publicized throughout campus. Mini-courses can be added to students schedules during the term.
