The University of Notre Dame is among seven leading academic institutions that will participate beginning this fall in Semester Online, the first education consortium to offer online, for-credit courses from top colleges and universities.
Notre Dame joins Boston College, Brandeis University, Emory University, Northwestern University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Washington University in St. Louis in the consortium, in partnership with 2U, an industry leader in creating online academic experiences for top universities.
“Semester Online provides a new educational experience of the highest quality, as rigorous as traditional on-campus instruction,” said Thomas G. Burish, Notre Dame’s provost. “The consortium offers innovative undergraduate courses from world-class research universities along with small discussion groups, personal engagement with leading professors, and full credit towards one’s degree. Notre Dame is pleased to join 2U and the outstanding consortium schools in this exciting venture."
