If you’re a student in the online UW Health and Wellness Management program, summer can save you time.
How much? Consider these two scenarios:
Say, you take two courses each spring and fall semester, and you take summers off. You’d earn your master’s degree in three years and a bachelor’s degree in five years.
Now, imagine you take two courses during each spring, summer, and fall semester. If you did this, you’d graduate with your master’s degree in about two years and your bachelor’s in three and a half years.
Summer matters a lot. Make it count.
You might be a UW Health and Wellness Management student already and want to speed up your time to graduation. Or maybe you haven’t applied to the program yet and want one semester to ease into online learning.
In either case, now is a perfect time to start planning because registration for summer courses opens March 13.
