Summer Courses

By: Artemis Harris

For graduate students within the English and World Languages Department it is a requirement that you take Summer and/or Winter classes in order to meet your degree requirements.  

Certain required classes are only offered during the Winter/Summer semesters. It is also aligned with the general timeline of a two-year graduation.    

This summer, Millersville has opened 2 classes to students in the English and World Languages program. In Summer 2 Dr. Zhang is offering an asynchronous class: Applied Linguistics. In Summer 3 Dr. Pfannenstiel is offering an asynchronous class: Professional Writing Workshop.  

Information on both classes is provided below.  

  • Summer 2: CRN 2157 ENGL 663 50A   
  • Applied Linguistics (Online)  

Class Summary: “Applications of current linguistic theory to the study and teaching of a variety of language-related subject matters, including grammar, composition, spelling, second language acquisition, reading and literature. Offered periodically.” 

  • Summer 3: CRN 3435 WRIT 673 50A   
  • Professional Writing Workshop (Online)  

Class Summary: “Focus upon the rhetoric(s) of professional communication within the contexts of students’ own on-the-job writing: how to thoughtfully select language, visual and audial texts, and deliberately designed formats to accommodate writers’ intentions as creative problem-solvers and to meet the needs of diverse audiences.” 

Both classes will help satisfy your degree requirements. If you have questions, speak with your advisor, who will be happy to help.
