Winter Intersession Offers Fast-track Courses to the Community

For individuals who want to accelerate their progress toward a degree, Cal State San Marcos is offering a wide range of fully online courses to the public in key academic areas during Winter Intersession 2021. With a compressed timeline, these courses enable students to earn as many as four units in four weeks. The session dates are Dec. 21, 2020, to Jan. 16, 2021.

Course topics feature such disciplines as astronomy; history; literature and writing studies; sociology; computer science; women’s, gender and sexuality studies; human development; philosophy; political science; and art, media and design.

During Winter Intersession, students from other universities, qualified high school seniors and community members can register for courses without being formally admitted to the university. Credits from CSUSM courses are fully transferable to other institutions. In addition, up to 24 undergraduate and nine graduate units taken as a nonmatriculated student may be counted toward a CSUSM degree.

By taking advantage of accelerated classes during Winter Intersession, students can speed time to graduation, lighten the course load required during fall and spring terms, or get a head start on education goals.

The class schedule is available beginning Oct. 12. Enrollment for CSUSM students opens on Oct. 19 and for the public on Oct. 26. For more information on Winter Intersession, please visit csusm.edu/winter.
