Here are some tips to keep in mind while selecting six-week courses:
- Students who enroll in six-week programs commonly choose two courses for credit from the list below. We suggest you consider enrolling in a First-Year Writing Seminar (English 1131 or English 1132) to build your college writing skills.
- Take care when choosing science, math, and computer science courses, which require rapid assimilation of difficult concepts. Such courses should not be chosen without carefully weighing the amount of work and the dedication they'll require. If you have any questions about this, please contact us.
- If your schedule permits, we encourage you to visit an additional course of your choice. With the instructor's approval, you may sit in on lectures and do the reading and assignments, but you won't have to take exams, and you won't receive credit or a grade (this course will not appear on your Cornell transcript); visiting a course allows you to pack as much learning into your Cornell summer as possible and lets you learn for the sheer joy of it. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity, not to be missed.
