Courses

Six-week courses

Please read through the tips below before selecting your six-week course(s):

  • 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 for a day or two. (To take advantage of this opportunity, stop by the Summer College academic office in B20 Day Hall to pick up a Visitors Program permission form.)
