More than 400 students enroll in this program, engaging in a variety of learning experiences - campus courses, field studies in distant places, independent study and directed research projects, and internships.
Credit loads have ranged from 1 through 18, and the reasons for enrollment are as varied as the students. Some are taking advantage of special courses they can’t fit into regular terms, some are using Summer credits to stay on track for their four-year goal - or accelerating for a quicker completion, and others are making up for missed credits. Whatever the reason, Summer provides the unusual experience of intimate learning (average class size around 10) in the intense mode of shorter terms.
Summer courses, whether Day or Evening, include the same total of cumulative hours as regular semester courses, and almost all the instructors are regular faculty. A Summer Dean’s List acknowledges high achievement for both traditional and adult/non-traditional students.
