Schedule of undergraduate courses to be offered in the Kanawha Valley released



Marshall University has released the full schedule of undergraduate courses that will be available this fall on its South Charleston campus.

Marshall’s South Charleston campus has previously housed primarily graduate courses. Officials earlier this year announced plans to add undergraduate course offerings there starting in fall 2016.

Targeted to Kanawha Valley residents who may not want to commute to Huntington or live on campus, the new undergraduate program will allow students to start their bachelor’s degrees in South Charleston and then transition to the Huntington campus to finish their studies.

Some of the courses available this fall in South Charleston will include:

  • First Year Seminar (FYS 100)
  • Fundamentals of Communications (CMM 103)
  • Beginning Composition (ENG 101)
  • Principles of Biology I (BSC 120)
  • Human Anatomy (BSC 227)
  • Computer Science (CS 110)
  • Freshman Engineering Seminar (ENGR 103)
  • Preparation for College Mathematics A & B (MTH 100 & MTH 102)
  • College Algebra (MTH 127)

A complete course schedule, including days and times, is available online at www.marshall.edu/closer. Prospective students and parents can also call 1-877-GO-HERD1.

Students on the South Charleston campus have access to a number of amenities and benefits, including free parking, a library and a study lounge. Merit-based and need-based financial aid is available for qualified students. Students must be fully admitted to Marshall University without conditions to take courses in South Charleston.

Registration is now open. Orientation sessions begin in July.

Ashton Caruthers of Hernshaw has registered for classes and will begin working toward her degree on the South Charleston campus.

“I wanted the quality education Marshall offers and the South Charleston campus is the right fit for me,” she said. “I’ll be able to start my degree while staying close to home. I can’t wait to be part of the Marshall family!”

Marshall’s South Charleston campus is located at 100 Angus E. Peyton Dr., just minutes from the State Capitol. The campus is easily accessible from I-64 using Exit 56 (Montrose Dr.) from the east and Exit 54 (MacCorkle Ave./Jefferson Rd.) from the west.
