• EMAR 160 Computation and Media Studio I (ACE 3) (3 Credits)

Nebraska’s modified fall academic calendar created an opportunity for additional academic offerings for interested students beginning the week after Thanksgiving.
"The pandemic has limited educational experiences for students this year, and UNL's fall three-week session helps them continue their educational journey," said Elizabeth Spiller, executive vice chancellor. "We are pleased to offer innovative new courses in this supplemental session for students who are looking for additional opportunities for experiential learning, career skills and readiness, and topic-based courses that reflect this historic moment in which we are living.”
All Fall Three-Week Sessions will be fully remote—there will be no on-campus instruction. If a class has a synchronous component, meaning you’ll be required to attend class on Zoom, specific days and times will be listed in MyRed.
