Oregon Extension, Ashland, Oregon (Eastern University) (Open to all majors) (Fall only)

Oregon Extension is a program sponsored by Messiah College, but located in the southern reaches of the Cascade Mountains. Students study, in sequence, four interdisciplinary themes: Contemporary Issues, Social Thought, Human Stories, and Living Faith. Special emphasis is given to individual professor-student interaction and attention to small group discussion and dialogue. Within each of these units, students can choose one academic discipline from among the following in which to receive 3-4 semester hours of credit: literature, psychology, sociology, philosophy, biology, theology, biblical studies, history, education, or science. Students earn an additional two hours of credit in Rhetoric and Composition. Oregon Extension Homepage
