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.

Arts and Architecture are two expression of human creativity that usually present several points of contact, innovative and sometimes challenging mirror of contemporary reality. In this scenario the boundary line between the two sectors is more and more fine, as demonstrated by the several museums and new building that are recognized as artworks themselves, designed by architect that are considered as “artist” or “starchitects”. But there are also professionals as Alejandro Aravena, recently awarded with the Pritzker 2016 and Curator of the next 15th International Architecture Exhibition, that have a different idea of what architecture is and have to do. Starting from the idea that “unlike military wars where nobody wins and there is a prevailing sense of defeat, on the frontlines of the built environment, there is a sense of vitality because architecture is about looking at reality in a proposal key”, the title he chose for the 2016 Biennale is: “Reporting From The Front”, a sort of declaration of intention want to remember to visitors that “architecture did, is and will make a difference in winning battles and expanding frontiers”. What the summer course in Contemporary Art and Architecture in Venice: the Biennal Exibithion want to analyze is the relation between contemporary art and architecture, looked from different points of view and prospective, so to provide its students with all the knowledge and tools useful to understand the new trend and challenge in Arts and Architecture.
