For Immediate Release

The First Summer Session at the University of Hawaii at Hilo is currently underway with a total of 60 courses. Registration for UH HiloÔÇÖs Second Summer Session, scheduled from June 16 to July 25, is ongoing. Over 100 courses in a wide variety of disciplines, such as agriculture, astronomy, biology, business, communication, computer science, economics, education, English, Hawaiian studies, marine science, mathematics, psychology, sociology, and many other disciplines, are still open for enrollment.

Of the 100 available courses, 17 of them are distance learning courses. ÔÇťDistance learningÔÇŁ occurs when students do not physically attend class, but rather are connected to their instructor by technology. Internet based courses provide education independent of time and location (asynchronous). Rather than gathering in a classroom, students in multiple locations interact with the instructor and their fellow classmates using technology.

Students find that summer is a great time to get a head start on college, catch up, get ahead, spend time concentrating on one course, or go on an adventure. Twenty-one students are in China studying Chinese thought and culture. Another 30 students are in Kona studying underwater ecological surveying techniques and presenting their findings in a symposium. Several other excellent educational activities are also available during the Second Summer Session.
