New Junior Comp class?

  1. 0 I was looking at the fall class offerings for the Academic Outreach section, there is a new class that I have not seen before. Called Writing for Women. It has a J after it, that would be a junior comp class, right?

    After hearing all of the comments about the Business Communications class, I really don't want to take that one.

    I saw that too and I'd much rather take it! I keep waiting for an opening to appear.

    If you or anyone else takes this class, I'd appreciate hearing how it is. I have a Jr comp class in my line up for spring. Thanks.

    Jr comp class for BSN completion really isn't all bad with Professor difficult conversations. Grades fair, plenty of time to complete assignments and offers extra credit options.

    I agree rninme. Just a lonnnnggggggg 15 weeks and the professor grades very fair. Glad I am getting it out of the way now! Extra credit is worth it!

    This will be the last class I have to take in the spring. Just did not work out any other way for me because I can only take one class at a time. Which professor is recommended?

    It depends on whether you are an academic outreach or BSN completion student ... prof difficult conversations is who BSN completion students get

    BSN completion students can also get prof "call me" (you are still required to read Difficult Conversations but it is a different professor). And I wouldn't recommend that anyone take the course with this professor. There are no extra credit opportunities, supposedly if you don't turn in an assignment you fail, and the assignments are ridiculous.

    I am just finishing the business communication class for the academic outreach program. It really is not a bad class. Quizzes are multiple attempts, there are discussion posts, journal entries, memos, and a final paper. The topics are interesting and assignments much easier than the nursing classes. I work full time, have a family, and was able to complete assignments over the weekend. You can also work ahead, as all assignments are available. The only thing not appealing about this class is the 15 week time frame. There is no extra credit offered in this class.

    I am finishing up business communications in BSN completion with professor "difficult conversations". LONG 15 weeks but very doable, assignments and DB posts doable. We could do 10 point extra credit, and I am not doing final assignment which is long, and only worth 10 points and will still come out with an "A". Don't think I will ever take a 15 weeks course again! To drawn out!

    Do you have a 5 week option for the Ethics PHIL1300 class? I'm registered for it for August, would rather not do a 15 weeker either.

    cincinnursemary I don't know what options there are for those courses as I did not have to take them. The business communications is only offered I believe in 15 week sessions which is way to long for me. 3 more weeks and I am done with this class!
