2019 Summer Course Syllabi

Instructors will be developing their summer course syllabi throughout the spring. We post these summer course syllabi here as soon as they are sent to us. All course syllabi are subject to change.

If you do not see a syllabus for the course you want, you can contact the instructor and ask them to send a draft syllabus to the Summer School for posting. You may also want to review 2018 and 2017 course syllabi for an idea of our typical offerings and course workloads. Note: some summer instructors teach the same courses for us every summer, so we've included links to their 2018 or 2017 syllabus for reference while we wait for an updated syllabus.
