Galloway, N.J. - Enroll now for summer sessions starting in May and June at Stockton University. Taking summer courses is a way for students to stay on time, on track and on budget in completing degrees or lightening course loads for the fall and spring semesters.

Over 300 courses, more than 175 of them totally online, will be offered at the Galloway, N.J. campus, and at the university’s Manahawkin, Hammonton and Woodbine locations. Summer classes are open to students enrolled in degree programs, non-matriculated students and students currently enrolled at other institutions.

Students can take three classes for the price of two, if at least one course is taken at one of Stockton’s locations in Ocean or Cape May counties, or at Kramer Hall in western Atlantic County. Under this plan, one four-credit course will cost in-state, undergraduate students $1,599 in tuition and fees, but three courses (12 credits) will cost the same as two at $3,198 - a savings of $1,599.

Among the interesting courses this summer is “Forgotten Crafts,” which will be offered at Anne Azeez Hall at the Sam Azeez Museum of Woodbine Heritage in Cape May County. Judith Vogel, associate professor of Mathematics, will teach this course which highlights multiple facets of the trades and crafts of a self-sufficient lifestyle. Topics will include seed-saving, bee keeping, canning, candle making, knitting, quilting and basket weaving.  These topics will be approached from a variety of disciplines: artistic, historical, scientific and cultural.  The Woodbine location will provide the perfect venue for the interactive demonstrations the course will offer its students, Vogel said.

In Manahawkin, Assistant Professor of Business Studies John Boyle will teach “The Philadelphia Experiment - a 300-Year History of the City of Philadelphia.” This comprehensive history of Philadelphia examines the city's rich political, artistic, physical, social and cultural development from its founding in 1681 by William Penn to the current political and social climate. Boyle will cover sports, artists, politics, museums, architecture - and yes, cheesesteaks and TastyKakes.

At Kramer Hall in Hammonton, summer courses include Speech Language Pathology in Schools and Medical Speech Language Pathology, Counseling in Communication Disorders, Homeland Security and Fashion & society.

Among the online courses are History of Television in America, taught by  Dennis Fotia, assistant director of E-Learning, and Science Fiction Studies, taught by adjunct faculty member Lydia Fecteau.
