MUNCIE — If you’re interested in learning more about the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on society, Ball State University will offer special classes to examine it this summer.

The classes will be all virtual, and will examine COVID-19’s effect on crisis management, the humanities, societal debate, and the arts.

“COVID-19 has caused profound changes to our way of life,” said Susana Rivera-Mills, Ball State’s provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “Offering these courses allows our learners to investigate current issues with our expert faculty.”

The first summer session begins May 11. The second begins June 15. Ball State is also waiving the application fee.
