In the summer, North Shore Community College will offer a course entitled Nathaniel Hawthorne in Cultural Context: Art, Artifact, and Selected Stories and Sketches through the Interdisciplinary Studies Department at NSCC. The course will use the resources of the Hawthorne in Salem Website developed at NSCC with a three-year grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and may be taken for three credits or as a non-credit course through North Shore Community College. Also, 45 PDPs (Professional Development Points) are available for both the credit and the non-credit options.

Students will be required to discuss the literary works on a Discussion Board online, but they will not be required to meet online at a particular time; that is, the course is asynchronous, allowing students some flexibility for submission of their work. Students taking the course for credit or for PDPs will be required to submit an end-of-semester paper or project.

To register for the course go to the NSCC homepage. Under Find Courses, select summer 2005 from the All Terms menu. Then select Interdisciplinary Studies from the Credit or Non-credit menus. Finally, scroll down to IDS 172 Hawthorne in Cultural Context and click on the Register Now button. The cost for the course is $339.

Students who have a college degree who wish to take the course for credit but who do not wish to matriculate as a NSCC student should download the registration form (or fill out the form in the college master schedule, available by calling NSCC at: 978-762-4000 x5516) and write in their college degree under "education." Then FAX the form to Mary Ellen Hunt in the enrollment office at: 978-762-4015. If you run into any difficulties registering for the course, email Mary Ellen Hunt at: mhunt @northshore.edu with a cc to twhitney@northshore.edu.

Comment from teacher formerly enrolled in this course:
"The Nathaniel Hawthorne online class has been a blessing for someone with an extremely busy schedule. The online discussions have enabled me to see how others also perceive Hawthorne's writing without having to spend time in a classroom. I hope that when this class is completed I will be able to share some of the knowledge that I have acquired in this class with my students."
