The 4-week Wellesley Pre-College Honors Immersion Program is for rising 11th and 12th grade women who want to experience what it's like to live at Wellesley College, cultivate connections with a community of young women from around the globe, and enjoy a credit-bearing, academically challenging summer.
Students take two courses alongside Wellesley students, a Writing Workshop and an Elective.
Credit-bearing Elective courses meet weekday mornings. Elective courses are also open to Undergraduate students so Pre-College students will truly get the feel of a college level class. All courses are taught by Wellesley faculty. Writing Workshops meet weekday afternoons and focus on building writing skills needed for applying to college.
Available Elective courses include:
AFR 242: New World Afro-Atlantic Religions and Cultures
ARTS 105: Drawing I
ARTS 221: Digital Imaging
CLCV 104: Classical Mythology
EXT 130: Exploring Gender Dynamics in Leadership
PSYC 101: Introduction to Psychology
SOC 102: Introduction to Sociology
STAT 101: Reasoning with Data
Students are expected to attend scheduled weekend group excursions. Excursions are designed to help participants explore the city of Boston, get to know other students, and build a strong community -- just like in college. All planned activity fees are covered in the cost of the program.
