Marquette University’s class scheduling for fall 2020 is now finalized, except for individual class changes that occur as circumstances require. In alignment with public health guidance to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, in-person fall 2020 classes will require 6-foot physical distance between seats, and the number of individuals in a classroom will be limited to no more than 50 (students and faculty).
Adhering to these guidelines required changes to most scheduled classes. In many cases, classes will be held in larger rooms than in past semesters, including in spaces that were previously dedicated to events, such as the Alumni Memorial Union. In some classes, students may only attend in-person on select meeting days, and online content will be provided to cover instruction on the remaining days. Other classes, particularly larger lectures, were moved to an entirely online format, although many retained a meeting schedule to allow for real-time virtual interaction. Our primary goals were to maximize the number of classes that meet in person and to ensure learning outcomes are maintained regardless of how each class is taught.
Students are strongly encouraged to continue to monitor their Marquette email address through the start of the semester for further communications regarding their classes. More information about our return to campus processes and protocols can be found in the Step Four Recovery Plan.
