What is a credit workshop?

All education abroad/away programs that provide credit are by default credit workshops. Credit workshops can also be non-travel, on campus, off campus, or online. They can include one or several Miami University courses that are flexibly scheduled and offered during all terms and in various locations: on campus, online, in the US, or abroad. The courses vary in length and content (compared to traditional on campus courses) as they extend the engaged learning experience offered at Miami University.

  • Credit workshops offer Miami credit
  • Credit may fulfill Miami major or minor requirements and some workshops meet capstone, thematic sequence, or independent study and research program requirements.
  • They provide flexibility, particularly in the summer, or winter terms when the student can earn credit in a shorter period of time.
