Please note: As Western University continues to respond to the changing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fall/Winter 2020-2021 course offerings may be subject to change. As you plan your course selections, we encourage you to review the academic timetable regularly and follow updates available on the Fall/Winter 2020-2021 course section of the Office of the Registrar Updates and FAQs website.
NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 crisis, all of our courses will be offered in one of the following 3 modes of delivery:
Applies to some of our relatively small Latin and Greek language courses. As long as the university considers face-to-face instruction with proper social distancing measures safe, these courses will be taught in-person in a classroom on campus with strict adherence to public health protocols. Students who plan on living at home due to COVID-19 or do not feel comfortable sitting together in a room with other people will be accommodated via ZOOM.
Synchronous Online Courses:
Applies to some of our Latin and Greek courses and some of our 2000-level and 3000-level Classical Studies Courses. In this course type, all teaching activities will take place online. You may access the course material any time you wish, but a particular timeslot has been reserved for some synchronous activities, such as mandatory or voluntary ZOOM sessions, timed quizzes on OWL, etc. (For details, see individual course outlines)
Asynchronous Online Courses:
Applies to CS 1000 and some of our 2000-level and 3000-level Classical Studies Courses. In this course type, all teaching activities will take place online. You may access the course material any time you wish; there are no mandatory synchronous activities at a particular time during the week.
