UNH N.H. Primary Course To Be Offered To The Public Online

May 26, 2014

The University of New Hampshire is opening up its class on the state's leadoff presidential primary to a wider audience through a Massive Open Online Course.  The course will be offered in the fall of 2015 and will build on a popular class the university has offered for the last several election cycles. Those participating from afar will be able to watch lectures and presentations from classroom guests and join in on discussions.  They won't earn college credit, and the university is still deciding how much they will be charged.  Topics will include research on the presidential nomination process, how it has evolved and New Hampshire's history of holding the nation's first primary. Students will hear from political activists, candidates and journalists who descend on the state every four years.
