Brandeis Summer School


Brandeis Summer School

The Brandeis Summer School offers students a diverse selection of undergraduate courses in two five-week sessions. Special summer programs on campus and abroad provide students with further opportunities for in-depth study.

The student has the opportunity to enroll in courses to meet university degree requirements, accelerate individual programs of study, work toward a double major or take enrichment courses. A maximum of four courses may be used toward the academic residency requirement. The average summer program course has a small student enrollment, generating a rigorous but informal atmosphere for teacher-student interaction.

Of particular interest to students are the strong summer program offerings in the area of premedical education, intensive language study, computer science courses, the wide variety of liberal arts selections and special programs in which academic work complements practical work experience.

A student may earn credit toward the Brandeis degree for no more than three semester courses in one summer.

Students entering Brandeis as freshmen must complete one semester at Brandeis before enrolling in Brandeis summer school courses.
