UCLA is home to world-class academic and research programs, and its resources include extensive libraries, athletic facilities, and cultural events.
Developed from courses that are already part of UCLA’s regular curriculum, Summer Institutes offer the breadth and depth of UCLA's academic rigor in an intensive, holistic format that allows you to share a unique hands-on learning experience. Upon completion, all courses that constitute each Summer Institute program’s curriculum will be listed on an official UCLA transcript.
Our Summer Institutes are open to students from around the country and the world , as well as UCLA students, and we invite you to come and study in a welcoming environment that appreciates diversity and global perspectives.
