Hot days call for cool classes. Whether you’re earning credits toward your degree or just looking to add an academic edge to the dog days of summer, Elmhurst College's Summer Term offers more than 70 courses at graduate and undergraduate levels. Best of all, classes are open not only to Elmhurst students, but also to students from other schools.
“Summer Term is an opportunity for students to catch up,” says Alzada Tipton, senior vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty. “Students have more time and focus to put into a summer course, because they aren’t juggling other classes.”
From astronomy to music to world languages, Elmhurst’s summer course offerings provide a wealth of disciplinary options. You can widen your worldview with classes like Cultural Anthropology or South Africa: Service and Interdisciplinary Study. You can tap your toes (and pens) to live music with Concerts for Credit. You can even earn an English credit and a passport stamp by studying abroad with Oxford and London: City as Text.
Summer Term even offers the opportunity for Elmhurst students to earn internship credits. “Everybody knows that all students should do an internship—or maybe multiple internships—these days, and some students only have time to do this in the summer,” says Tipton. “We want to help promote that.”
