School of Education Offers Online Summer Courses [04/28/2020]


Baylor University School of Education (SOE) will offer summer courses online as part of Baylor’s “Summer of Discovery” for 2020. Special tuition discounts apply for both current and incoming students, and the savings increase as the number of summer hours increases.

Baylor created special online course “bundles” for this summer, and the SOE has added some education courses that are not usually offered in summer.

“These online summer course bundles are a great way for students to pick up classes that help them progress toward graduation and free up time in their remaining semesters for work or study abroad,” said SOE associate dean, Dr. Suzanne Nesmith.

Courses are also offered to incoming students, allowing them to get a jump start on their Baylor education. Core university-required courses offered through the College of Arts & Sciences are also available to education students, with recommendations listed on the SOE information pages. Each student’s plan will be customized by SOE academic advisors.

Students may visit Baylor’s main “Summer of Discovery” website at to see all courses available. Click the applicable option for current students, incoming students, or rising high school seniors. Then scroll to the School of Education button (pictured, right) and click that to see courses offered in the SOE, along with recommended university-required courses. Incoming students must begin the process through their goBAYLOR account to change their entry term to Summer 2020.
