Writing for Social Change is offered every FALL semester. The seminars meet:
This is a full-time (16-credit) program and most students do not take additional U of M courses. Students may choose to take additional U of M courses (but must pay U of M per-credit tuition) as long as they do not conflict with the progam schedule.
*Several field trips will occur during evenings and weekends throughout the semester. These dates will be available at the start of the semester so you can adjust your schedule accordingly.
U of M students enroll in three ID (Interdepartmental) courses totaling 16 credits:
In addition to fulfilling Liberal Education requirements (listed above), it is possible to fulfill major and/or minor requirements. (Contact your advisor or the Off-Campus Study Programs office for details). If the credits cannot be applied to major/minor requirements, oftentimes students use these ID 3000-level credits to fulfill "upper-division, outside of major requirements."
HECUA students do not pay U of M tuition but instead pay a program fee. The fee for the 16-credit fall semester program (2015) is $8,400. Additional fees may apply. The program fee is billed through your U of M student account.
If you choose to take additional U of M courses, tuition is assessed on a per-credit basis (visit OneStop for current tuition rates).
