In light of Campus closure regarding COVID-19, employees in the college of Education and Behavioral Sciences are working remotely and faculty are teaching classes virtually in an effort to best support our campus community. We ask for your patience as some services may be limited and response time may increase. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Updates will be published to UNC's COVID-19 information page as the situation develops.

Due to the need for social distancing as a result of the SARS-CoV2 virus, summer courses for the Teaching ASL MA (TASL) and the ASL English Interpreting BA (ASLEI) programs will be offered in an alternative distance format.  Neither students nor faculty will be on campus this summer session.

Please check your bearmail regularly for more information.

    The summer session always involves a lot of work condensed into a short period of time.  Each of you will be taking 6-7 credits this summer. 

    Schedule & Preparation

    Syllabus: Your instructors will send out the course syllabus two weeks prior to the course start date. 

    The final version of the Syllabus will be in your online Canvas classes.  ALWAYS use the version from your Canvas classes as there may have been editing changes from the time they were sent to you  and when they posted in Canvas.

    Once you have accessed the Syllabus, go to the Required Materials page.

    If you need to order materials, you may do so at your favorite site or use the campus book store: The UNC Book Store.  All items may not be available to order right away so be sure to check back as needed. 

    Schedules: Although the start and end dates and times vary according to contact hour requirements, you will essentially be in live Zoom sessions for 2-3 hours a day. 

    Homework: In addition to what appears on the schedule, you will have homework each night that will require your time and attention.  There will also be major assignments that will require weekend work. 

    The following hyperlinks are the class sequences for summer 2020.
