Take College Summer Courses and Get Ahead

  1. 1. www.helpingpsychology.com Take College Summer Courses and Get Ahead
  2. 2. www.helpingpsychology.com The days of graduating from college in no more than four years are over. Many modern students taking psychology courses work full or part-time while attending school and as a result have to take fewer classes each semester to maintain a balance.
  3. 3. www.helpingpsychology.com If you want to graduate in a reasonable time, you can take summer courses to supplement your fall or spring schedule. That way, you can take three to four classes each full semester and take one or two in the summer.
  4. 4. www.helpingpsychology.com It may put a damper on your summer plans, but taking summer psychology courses can really help you get ahead in the long run.
  5. 5. www.helpingpsychology.com Reasons to take summer college courses include: <ul><li>Summer courses are generally half the length of regular courses </li></ul><ul><li>so you typically learn the most important parts of a subject as it </li></ul><ul><li>is condensed to fit the course time limit. </li></ul><ul><li>Easier enrollment is definitely a plus. Instead of competing with </li></ul><ul><li>a throng of other students during full semester psychology </li></ul><ul><li>courses, you will have a better chance of getting the class you </li></ul><ul><li>want in the summer since fewer students take summer courses. </li></ul><ul><li>More one-on-one time with the professor is another benefit of </li></ul><ul><li>summer school. Summer classes tend to have much smaller </li></ul><ul><li>class sizes which allow you better access to your teacher. </li></ul>
  6. 6. www.helpingpsychology.com While summer psychology courses seem like a great way to get ahead in your education, there are some issues that might arise so just make sure to check into them before enrolling. <ul><li>Some scholarship and financial aid programs do not cover </li></ul><ul><li>summer classes. </li></ul><ul><li>Less student housing is available during the summer on the </li></ul><ul><li>average college campus. </li></ul><ul><li>The variety of professors teaching summer courses is less </li></ul><ul><li>diverse, so you may end up with a professor that is not your </li></ul><ul><li>favorite. </li></ul><ul><li>You do not get that 3-4 month break that so many college </li></ul><ul><li>students enjoy. </li></ul>
  7. 7. www.helpingpsychology.com Overall, taking summer psychology courses tends to be a really good idea for the average college student. They help keep students on track with their four-year degree and also relieve some of the stress of having to try and carry 15 credits a semester during the fall and spring semesters.
