Credit Workshops

A credit workshop includes one or several Miami University courses, but they are flexibly scheduled and offered during all terms and in various locations: on campus, online, in the US, or abroad. The courses vary in length and content (compared to traditional on campus courses) as they extend the engaged learning experience offered Miami University.

  • Credit workshops offer Miami credit—exactly the same credit a student receives in a traditional course on campus.
  • A faculty member may offer a related group of existing courses or newly developed courses and teach them at an abroad location.
  • Credit may fulfill Miami major or minor requirements and some workshops meet capstone, thematic sequence, or independent study and research program requirements. Always check with an academic advisor to determine what requirements the workshop credit will fulfill.
  • Students appreciate the flexibility, particularly in the summer, or winter term when the student can earn credit in a shorter period of time.
  • For example: You can receive six credits of a language in about four weeks of intensive cultural study abroad, allowing for time during the standard fall or spring semester to enroll in other courses and stay on track toward degree requirements.
