University offers off-campus classes

Registration still open for fall classes in graduate education programs taught at five off-campus locations | July 19, 2004

Xavier has made it even easier to earn a graduate degree. The University’s department of education allows students to attend graduate classes at five off-campus locations around the tri-state area.

Four locations—Glen Este High School, Oak Hills Professional Development Center, Middletown Fenwick High School, Covington Catholic High School—offer four core courses that lead into the traditional teacher education program concentrations. The Wilmington High School site offers the entire degree program.

Students who do not attend classes at the Wilmington High School location complete the remainder of the degree on Xavier's main campus. Programs are also available in industry-related areas such as counseling, human resource development and sport administration.

"If you are considering Xavier, I invite you to talk with people who have experienced our programs," said James Boothe, department of education chair and an associate professor of education. "They say they appreciate the personal attention provided by our staff and faculty. Further, they point to the ability of our faculty to apply theoretical knowledge to real situations in schools and organizations. Our best measure of success is evidenced by our graduates who are making a difference in their communities and professions."
