FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University will offer three baccalaureate courses at Northeastern Technical College in Cheraw beginning this fall.
The courses are being made available through a cooperative agreement between the two colleges, in response to a continuing need for baccalaureate-level classes in rural areas of South Carolina. The courses that will be offered are for students interested in working on a four-year degree in business or elementary education.
The classes scheduled for fall are English 200 – Writing for Disciplines, which will be offered by Internet; Psychology 315 – Child Behavior: Growth and Development, which will meet Wednesdays from 1 to 3:50 p.m.; and Marketing 331 – Principles of Marketing, which will meet Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m. The cost for each course is $585 and classes begin Aug. 22.
More FMU classes will be offered on the NETC campus in future semesters. FMU also plans to establish an office on the NETC campus, which will be staffed with a coordinator of FMU’s programs at NETC.
FMU academic representatives will hold an information session Aug. 16 from 3:30 to 7 p.m. in Willamette Hall on the Northeastern Technical College campus. During this session, students may register for classes, obtain books and pay fees.
FMU president Fred Carter and NETC president Ron Hampton will jointly announce the collaborative partnership at 2 p.m., Aug. 22 on the NETC campus in Cheraw.
