Each summer course is the equivalent of a full, quarter-long (10 week) course.
Courses are three weeks long. Students will be class from 9am – 3pm CST with a lunch break Monday through Friday. Read each course listing carefully.
Once you choose the course(s) for which you would like to apply, make a note of the department code and course number (ex. ANTH 21501).
