ODU Expands Evening Course Offerings



Columbus, OH – Ohio Dominican University (ODU) is more than doubling the number of its evening courses offerings to offer students significantly more flexibility in what courses they may take, and when. 

Starting in the fall 2013 semester, ODU will offer 35 undergraduate-level evening courses in a variety of disciplines, including Business, Education, Computer Information Systems, Biology, Mathematics and Art. 

“Many students have the desire to advance their education, but simply cannot commit the necessary time due to work, family and other obligations,” said Vice President for Academic Affairs, Theresa Holleran, Ph.D. “Ohio Dominican University’s expanded evening course offerings are designed specifically with those students in mind. This is a unique opportunity for students of all ages and educational backgrounds to take just a couple of courses or work toward their goal of achieving a degree around their busy schedules, and at their own pace.” 

ODU’s evening courses start at 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday. 

This expansion is part of a multifaceted approach to offer students courses that fit their schedule. Currently, six of ODU’s seven Graduate Programs are offered exclusively in the evening. Additionally, ODU offers its cohort-based Evening Degree Program, which offers working professionals an accelerated path to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree, as well as a certificate, in a variety of business-related fields.  

“Whether they are recent high school graduates, college transfer students or working professionals, this expansion puts students in the driver’s seat when it comes to their education,” said Holleran. 

Ohio Dominican University is a four-year private liberal arts and master’s institution, founded in 1911 in the Catholic and Dominican tradition. The University has approximately 2,700 students and offers undergraduate degrees in 43 majors as well as seven graduate degree programs. Ohio Dominican uses a student-centered approach, with a commitment to quality teaching and learning.
