"NEW - Global Campus Promo" Spring 2021

Western’s "Online LIVE" courses provide the opportunity for students to engage in Gospel-Centered Transformation, in real-time, with teachers and students through a video conferencing platform, such as Zoom. Online LIVE classes are open to every Western student and scheduled with distance students in mind. These classes typically meet for an hour every week, during late weekday afternoons or Saturday mornings. While some of these classes utilize lecture videos in tandem with live video teaching, others rely only on live class time for instruction.

This Spring 2021 the Online Campus will be offering these "Online LIVE" classes.
