Top 10 Reasons to Enroll in Summer Classes

Posted April 18th, 2014 at 3:45PM

10. Special on-campus events during the summer

RMCAD becomes a summertime oasis with afternoon BBQs, a massive slip-n-slide, arts and crafts events on campus, and even a Professional Practices Workshop Series available only to summer students!

9. Avoid fees and get stuff for free

Who doesn't love free money? Based on your enrollment status, you could get up to $100 in credit to Spectrum, the RMCAD store. Your $375 facilities/tech fee will also disappear like a mirage if you take classes on campus. See your advisor for more details. 

8. You don't have to take classes all summer

With the new eight-week format, you get three chances during the summer to start classes. You can take a vacation and get an education, or you can release your inner over-achiever and take classes all summer long!

7. Open up space in your fall schedule for more electives

Check those general education requirements off your list!

6. Special classes are offered in the summer

Summer is a special time - so we offer special classes. Always wanted to learn calligraphy? Now's your chance. Animal anatomy? We're teaching that too - but only during the summer!

5. Your landlord doesn't take the summer off

If you've rented a place around here, chances are that your lease goes through the summer. Don't waste money terminating your lease or hassle with moving. Stay in your home, take classes and avoid cleaning your apartment!

4. Your favorite instructors will be here

Don't you want to keep them company? They've made themselves available because they care about your education. You don't want to let them down, do you?

3. Take classes from anywhere

You don't have to be on campus to take classes. If you enroll in online courses, you can take classes poolside, on top of a mountain, at your grandma's house or in an underground cave, if you're into that. 

2. Complete your degree on time or early

Being a student at RMCAD is awesome. But taking too much time off delays graduation. Don't let your friends leave you behind as they graduate. 

1. You love RMCAD, and RMCAD loves you

It's sappy, but we'll miss you if you go. We think that there's something special between the two of us and we want to stay together. RMCAD is your school. You picked us above all the rest. Let's share some summer love. 

RMCAD offers Half-priced ELET program to Colorado Teachers

Posted April 18th, 2014 at 11:50AM

Colorado Teachers who enroll during the summer of 2014 will receive 50% off of their tuition for the duration of the Master of Arts in Education, Leadership + Emerging Technologies (ELET) program. Classes start May 5, June 2 and June 30. The program is offered entirely online and can be completed from anywhere.

Thanks to our national and regional accreditation, the MA in ELET can equip teachers for leadership positions and bring innovation into the classroom.

Coursework in the Education, Leadership and Emerging Technologies Master of Arts program covers:

Education
The ELET program has education at its core. Topics include learning theories, research and assessment, E-learning strategies and learning environments. In many programs, students just read about technologies and techniques. At RMCAD, students learn by doing and produce materials that can be used in the classroom right away.

Leadership
By integrating cutting-edge methods and technology into the curriculum, the ELET degree produces graduates who are prepared to lead at any level. Leadership topics in conflict management and change management help teachers develop practical skills that are immediately usable in the K12 environment.

Emerging Technologies
ELET students master the creation of podcasts, video, and E-books; learn web design with HTML and CSS; design in a Learning Management System; and create games that will engage students.

Graphic Design professor, Fred Murrell will participate in AIGA’s 100 Years 100 Designers project to celebrate AIGA’s 100 Years of Design. For this endeavor, artists were given a year from 1914-2014 to create art that embodies that period. Fred Murrell was chosen to represent the year 1995. All the pieces will ultimately be shown together to represent 100 years of AIGA design.

Murrell serves on RMCAD’s board of directors and is a design ambassador and professor in the graphic design department. He previously worked for Sapient, Texas Instruments, Carnegie Mellon University, and Rochester Institute of Technology, to name a few. Murrell has operated in Executive Board positions for AIGA and has been recognized for his design and teaching in graphics, communication arts, print and AIGA Competitions.

The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) was founded in 1914; it’s the oldest and largest professional association for design. AIGA works to enhance the value and deepen the impact of design on business, society and the future. Within its 100-year tenure, AIGA’s focus and reach has expanded substantially to over 25,000 members nationwide. AIGA is proud to celebrate its 100 Years of Design.
