About the Case Western Reserve Pre-College Program

The CWRU Pre-College Program courses are 100% online and almost entirely asynchronous, meaning that you can complete the course whenever your schedule allows. There will be about 30 hours of overall course time over two or four weeks, depending on the session you choose, which includes engaging recorded video lessons, unit assignments, and live sessions with your mentor. 

The two courses offered are: 

  • Origins: How the Universe, the Solar System, and Life Began
  • Social Entrepreneurship: The Business of Helping Others

Origins: How the Universe, the Solar System, and Life Began

Whether you want to major in a STEM subject, pre-med or seek a future in law or journalism, a good background in science is key. Take the ultimate tour of the Cosmic Zoo: from the Big Bang, to emergence of life on earth, from solar system to ecosystem. Along the way you’ll meet dinosaurs, nanoscience, mutant viruses and exoplanets and explore the depths of human consciousness. Enjoy video from two of our award-winning and most popular professors: Dr. Patricia Princehouse and Dr. Glenn Starkman.

Social Entrepreneurship: The Business of Helping Others

Discover how social entrepreneurs get started, build a value proposition, find customers, identify problems, come up with solutions and create a team. Ideal for future business majors, budding entrepreneurs and anyone with a social conscience. Enjoy video from experienced social entrepreneurs Michael Goldberg, Associate Professor, Design & Innovation and Megan Buchter, Director, Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit. 

Cost and Session Information

All course options, whether 2 or 4 weeks, have the identical educational content, learning materials, and number of assignments. The difference in length of course is due to time of year (not amount of instruction). We know the school year keeps you busy, so we’ve made the course longer during that time so that you can get assignments done.

Cost: $995 for all programs
