Faculty-led Short-Term Programs

Short-term programs usually range from two to four weeks, and you can earn three to six credits.  One type of short-term program is faculty-led; these programs typically run during the summer and are academic classes led by professors who conduct each respective program. For an idea of programs that have run in the past, see below.

The application period for faculty-led programs generally runs from mid-October until late February. Updated information regarding specific dates will go out through university-wide announcements.
