Short Course Intensives

Short Course Intensives (ADVRT/JLMC/PR 391) are short-term courses exploring specific and advanced skills that enrich what is offered the Greenlee School's core classes. They are 1-credit, satisfactory/fail courses with no pre-requisites. Many will be co-taught by industry professionals.

The meeting days and times will vary for each short course based on the skill taught – one course might meet over two long weekends, one course might meet over a few evenings in the semester or one might meet once a week for the entire semester. The topics will change every semester, so sign up quickly during registration if you see something that can help you build skills toward your future professional goals!

If you're not currently enrolled at Iowa State University, you can apply for admission to take a short course as a nondegree student.
