Teachers in Industry: Content Courses

The table below lists a number of courses that have been identified as content courses available online or face-to-face after 4PM.  This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all courses available or recommended for Teachers in Industry, and if you find additional courses that should be listed here, please send an email to Dr Olsen.   You are also responsible for determining if you have the appropriate background for success in your course choices, and contacting the instructor is recommended.

You should first search https://uaccess.schedule.arizona.edu/ to determine the courses which best fit your own needs.

Many other graduate level content courses are available at the other state universities and we are able to support your studies there.

There are also excellent classes available online from institutions outside Arizona, such as Montana State's NTEN courses, the American Museum of Natural History, and others, which we are not able to stipend.

Whatever courses you take, you need to complete a course reporting form to Dr Olsen.

*****If you are not taking a UA course during any semester you are taking an off campus content course, you MUST complete and submit a "Leave of Absence" form from UA, available here:
