2020 Summer Course Syllabi

Instructors are developing their summer syllabi right now. We will post Summer 2020 syllabi as soon as they receive them!

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. Note: some summer instructors teach the same courses every summer, so we may include links to their syllabi from previous summer terms for reference while we wait for an updated syllabus.

All course syllabi are subject to change.

Summer 2021

We're busy planning Summer 2021! Take a look at our 2020 summer classes to get an idea of the classes we typically offer (courses change each summer). Let us know if there are classes you'd like to see offered!

Summer 2020 was online

Due to COVID-19, all Brandeis Summer School classes were online for Summer 2020. There were two models of instruction 5-week synchronous "remote learning" and 10-week asynchronous online courses. We are not certain if we will be having classes on-campus this summer, but will update students as soon as we know.
