Summer courses offered for traditional students at KU Edwards Campus

OVERLAND PARK -- Working professionals won't be the only students this summer taking classes at the University of Kansas Edwards Campus. For the fifth consecutive summer, the campus is offering courses specifically for traditional undergraduate students.

More than 40 upper-level undergraduate courses will be available in biology, engineering, psychology, geography, history, and theatre and film.

"Enrollment in this program has grown rapidly, by 60 percent, since it first launched in summer 2000," said Mary Ryan, associate dean of academic affairs at the KU Edwards Campus.

The Summer at KU in KC undergraduate program is aimed at KU students and students from other universities who return to the Kansas City area in the summer and want to take courses.

"It provides an opportunity for students to get a jump on completing their degree, or it can provide an opportunity to get elective hours," Ryan said. "We have served students from a variety of schools and universities, such as the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Kansas State University, Creighton University, Johnson County Community College and dozens more."

Bob Clark, vice chancellor of the Edwards Campus, said, "This is an important program for us. It is another way of helping to expand the Kansas City area's access to KU's excellent academic programs."

Classes will take place Monday through Friday in the mornings, afternoons and evenings. For more information, please contact Dan Mueller, Edwards Campus undergraduate adviser, at dmueller@ku.edu, or visit edwardscampus.ku.edu.
