Many full time students take classes full time during the academic year and spend their summers relaxing or working to save money for the upcoming school year. In order to preserve, enhance, or add to the information they have already learned, some students choose to take summer courses.
What is a summer course? The name itself denotes that it is a course the typically takes place during the summer. These courses are typically offered by colleges, universities and other schools around the world. Some summer courses benefit students with additional knowledge that will assist them in a future career. Other courses also provide credits toward a higher level degree.
There are many expected and unexpected benefits for those who enroll in a summer course. Gaining more knowledge and keeping current with career enhancing skills are among those benefits that students expect. What individuals may not expect is that taking a summer course often preserves valuable knowledge and study skills, making the return to school much easier at the summer’s end.
Because there is much variation in the types and levels of summer courses that are available, the costs of the courses may also vary. For example, a summer course in fashion, taken through a community college may cost much less than a summer engineering course taken from a four-year university. Contacting individual schools to get information about tuition costs is strongly advised.
Almost any current or future career can be enhanced when one invests time into a summer course. Those who are still in school gain the benefit of not losing ground on the things they have learned during the school year. Their study habits may also be better than those students who do no studying during the summer months. Individuals that are already employed in a career may also benefit by learning more job skills by taking a short summer course.
The most important part of taking a summer course is to make the decision that your ongoing education is important. Once the decision is made, you can search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Summer course 2019. About the course:
In our one-week course, we critically and playfully explore public space not only as a "generosity" that architecture can offer to society but also as a political, social and deeply urban condition. Public space is not simply found or even designed, it is lived and made; in a nutshell, public space is emancipatory. For such reflections, we use both the Biennale exhibitions and the city of Venice as our field sites.
In a diverse set of lectures, hands-on workshops, discussions, and tours with local and international experts we will enquire into the conditions - potentials and restrictions - that make public space possible for different groups of people in Venice, but also in cities in general. ...
