Congratulations June Watkins! The Academic Technology Center is proud to announce that June's fully online course - REL 3213 - Hebrew Scriptures, has been awarded Quality Matters (QM) Certification.

Review team members take the students' perspective with regard to clarity and organization of an online course, providing feedback on course design by awarding points for specific review standards. Thanks to June for her commitment to quality course design and instruction.

June is an instructor in the Philosophy Department . She holds an MA degree in Humanities and an MA degree in Religion from the Claremont Graduate University School of Religion, where she is currently a PhD Candidate in Philosophy of Religion.
