J-Term Short Course Sign-Up
Short Courses are co-curricular experiences designed to allow you to explore topics, activities, and skills that you may not otherwise have the opportunity to explore during your time at Randolph-Macon College. Short Courses are not for credit. They do, however, offer you the opportunity to learn new skills and participate in intentional exploration without the time commitment required of traditional semester long courses.
Each Short Course section is independent and designed to stand alone. You may take them as a group or mix and match to fit your schedule and desires. So feel free to register for as many or as few as you would like. Most importantly, we hope that you will take the time this J-term to Edutain Yourself!
