“Short” Course Descriptions

“Short Courses” are classes whose duration is less than a half semester (7 week module) and that are not generally a recurring part of the curriculum. Typical uses for Short Courses are courses offered in conjunction with the campus visit of a scholar with exceptional expertise or experience.

Each course has specific dates. Please consult the Allegheny faculty listed below if you have questions.

Students may add and drop Fall or Spring “short” (less than 7-week) courses through the first week of the period in which the course is offered, as posted on WebAdvisor, or the last day of the posted period of the course, whichever is sooner.

Students may not use a Student-Initiated Withdrawal (‘X’) for a Fall or Spring short (less than 7-week)
