In the Liberal Arts & Sciences program at Syracuse University Summer College, high school students have the opportunity to enroll in two 3-credit undergraduate courses during Syracuse University’s Summer Session II. Approximately twenty courses are open for high school student participation each summer.

All programs and courses are college-level and led by Syracuse University faculty and instructors. Noncredit and college credit-bearing programs are offered and run at different lengths (2, 3, 4, and 6 weeks) from June 30 through August 10. Field trips and activities on campus give students the opportunity to relax, have fun, and make new friends.

Residential students stay in a university residence hall and eat in a university dining hall. Students also have access to all of Syracuse University’s facilities, which include the library, recreation centers, and student centers. Room and board are included in the overnight summer program costs.

A performance at the end of the session showcases the students’ improved skills and command of their bodies, mind, and voices.

The Summer College 4-week, 3-credit Architecture program is one of Syracuse University’s most popular summer programs for high school students. Students build their understanding and appreciation of architecture through design problems, drawing and modeling exercises, lectures and tutorials, and class discussions. Living the life of a university architecture student for four weeks can help students decide whether to pursue study in a professional architectural school or in a related field. If a student discovers the desire to pursue architecture as a career, they will have a head start.

 All of Syracuse University Summer College 6-week programs are college-level, college credit-bearing courses. Students earn up to six college credits. Programs and courses are offered in five areas of study and in two enrollment types: programs/courses that are exclusive to Summer College students and programs/courses that are open to both Summer College students and Syracuse University students. Students are enrolled in two courses in this program.

 Here are this summer's 6-week program offerings:
