The College at Brockport Online Courses

  • 100% Online Courses (Asynchronous)
  • Combined Online Courses (Asynchronous and Synchronous)

The College at Brockport online courses are offered by accessing the Internet. They provide flexible scheduling and learning for students who find it difficult to fit a traditional class into their schedules. Our online courses are taught and taken via the Blackboard Learning Management System (LMS). To take an online course, you need to have access to a computer with a connection to the Internet (whether at home, school or work), possess or be willing to learn basic computer skills, and have the ability to work independently and keep yourself on schedule with your studies. If you are transferring online course credits into your program of study, first obtain verification in writing with your home campus that the course credit will transfer.

Our Online Concierge is available to answer online learning questions for you at onlineconcierge@brockport.edu or (585) 395-5734.

Featured On-Campus Course

HST 201.21 (CRN 1142): Ancient World Seminar
January 2-12, 2018; MTWRF, 9 am-1:30 pm
Brockport Campus
Instructor:  Katherine Clark Walter

This course is an intensive-format take on the more traditional semester-long Ancient World survey.  We will examine fundamental questions in the human experience such as "how do we know about feeling and emotion in the ancient world?" "How did class and gender hierarchies develop?"  and "is violence an inveitable outcome of religion?" Using literature, art, archaeology, and film, we will explore some representative cultures from important developmental moments in the ancient world to learn not only about the distant past, but how structures from the past continue to inform our more recent history and even our present circumstances.  The intensive, discussion-based course is well suited to a variety of formats at each meeting, including small group work and discussion and analysis of film.  This course is ideal for students who are seeking Humanities and/or Other World Cultues credit (H or O) in Brockport's General Education Program, transfer students looking to get a head start on their Gen Ed or History requirements, or anyone who is interested in an interdisciplinary approach to the ancient Eurasian world and its cultural legacy today.
