Courses by Newspaper--The Missing Adjective.
Lewis, Caleb A.
Courses By Newspaper is a national program that offers college-level instruction through the newspapers. The courses have as a target audience the adult learner who has never attended college, the college graduate, and the college dropout. The newspaper lessons are distributed to participating newspapers by the Copley News Service. The newspapers carry the course without charge. The original course is organized and developed by an authority in the field. At this point, 264 newspapers carry the courses, with the number of credit students for the first course numbering 5,000. What makes national newspaper courses so unique is that they offer every citizen the chance to study with the nation's best scholars. (Author/PG)
