Create Your Own Schedule
From online to accelerated courses, the flexibility of Summer Sessions means you can maximize your time and pursue your other interests and goals–be it travel, work, or an internship–alongside your studies.
Explore Something New
Summer is also a perfect time to take a course in a new subject area to expand your horizons or to add a new minor under your belt. Scores of minors, including accounting, entrepreneurship, film & TV, statistics, and more, can be completed in Summer Sessions alone.
