Welcome to Summer College 2014

 
UMass Amherst Summer College offers of two- and six-week intensives all with optional college credit.
 
All intensives offer a mix of learning through lectures combined with hands-on experience in a laboratory or studio setting.
 
Class sizes are limited and offer opportunities for the exchange of ideas and the development of new knowledge and skills. Students frequently work in small teams with the guidance and support of the faculty and a graduate teaching assistant. Students will also have opportunities to develop their own projects in small groups or individually, using the outstanding resources available at UMass Amherst.
