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.

As the natural ecology on which we depend shifts due to climate change, how do we adapt? How do we map and explore possible pathways for action in order to bridge the recent past, ongoing changes, and projected futures?
Workshop Dates: August 19-23, 2019
Faculty: Francesca Desmarais & Kelton Minor
What is this workshop?
Although carbon emissions continue to rise, global energy and consumption systems are in the midst of a transformation towards low carbon futures. But what happens in the meantime? How do we react to the climatic changes that we already see, changes which we expect to intensify in the coming decades: more frequent, intense weather events, prolonged droughts, rising sea levels, and more dangerous heatwaves? How do we address the indirect effects brought on by these changes, from changing disease vectors and shifting species habitats to human migration and relocation?...

July 21—August 3, 2019
Join a small community of students interested in moving beyond “green” toward understanding what will be necessary to achieve a truly sustainable future. Learning and living together with a group of equally concerned and engaged people, you will explore how Smith College and our neighboring communities are practicing the ideals and principles of sustainability. We’ll talk about what is working, and what still needs to be done.
Thinking and Acting Beyond “Green”
In this two-week interdisciplinary program, we will approach the issues of energy production, ecological design and sustainable food from multiple—and sometimes conflicting—points of view to expose and understand the complexities and potential impacts of tackling (or ignoring) the issues. Our exploration of these issues will be informed and guided by important work in the natural sciences and the humanities.
