Graduate Credit for ACCA Lecture Series

Olivet Nazarene University is offering graduate credit for the ACCA Lecture Series. The graduate credit is being coordinated by Dr. Douglas Armstrong,

Graduate credit will be given to any person who already has a bachelors degree, and who attends ANY EIGHT of the ten nights (below), and writes a brief summary on each of the eight. Since only eight are required, if you don’t’ hear about this in time to attend the first two nights, you may still earn graduate credit via the last eight nights. Contact Dr Armstrong if you have questions.
