ESF Summer Session 2011

I am enthused to report that our faculty have assembled a wonderful array of courses and programs that will serve ESF students, as well as visiting college/university students, rising high school seniors, K-12 educators, professionals and lifelong learners through a more formal four-part Summer Session.

ESF’s four summer terms include online, classroom, and field-based courses:

  • Maymester (2 weeks): Monday, May 16 – Friday, May 27
  • Summer Session 1 (6 weeks): Monday, May 23 – Friday, July 1
  • Summer Session 2 (6 weeks): Tuesday, July 05 – Friday, August 12
  • Combined Session (12 weeks): Monday, May 23 – Friday, August 12

In addition to serving students enrolled in ESF undergraduate and graduate degree programs (referred to as matriculated students), ESF welcomes in good standing at other colleges or universities (we call these Visiting Students and you will also hear “nonmatriculated” or “nondegree” classifications used to describe students who are not enrolled in degree programs at our campus).  Students will find this a convenient and effective way to make up a course or to advance their academic progress.

Summer Session 2011 represents many of ESF’s academic areas and includes applied mathematics, information literacy and writing skills, as well as courses that will serve academic professional development needs and interests.

Course schedules and descriptions, registration, tuition, financial aid, and related information are available at the ESF Summer Session 2011 web page: www.esf.edu/outreach/summer

For your information and convenience, I’ve included below a list of courses arranged by topical area.
