Waiting List for Spring 2014

When course enrollment reaches its maximum, then as some students drop I will give those on a waiting list permission to sign up. Not all online classes are the same. This one is designed for student interaction, and requires a lot of reading. Before you sign up to be on the waiting list, please read the Top Ten list of things you should know about this course to make sure that this sort of online course really would be a good class for you. By the way, this course website will be revised between now and the start of the semester; but feel free to browse around to see what the course was like the last time it was offered.

Western Culture: If you are looking for other courses that satisfy the Western Civilization requirement, do a "Power Search" at enroll.ou.edu (display only courses that have open seats).
