Accelerated Courses (Courses in 7 Weeks)

Middlesex County College offers students an opportunity to take some classes in a 7 week format. These classes include Student Success 101, History of Western Civilization I, Introduction to Psychology, and Introduction to Psychology.

These classes move more quickly and also provide you with an opportunity to take a second course in the other 7 weeks. Do you think these courses fit your learning style?  Might you benefit from a course that allows you to earn three credits in a faster period of time? If so, speak with an advisor at New Student Orientation. He or she will be happy to discuss your options with you.
