The following is a list of program-approved courses. You can click on each course to view course descriptions, available sections, course dates, meeting days/times, and other relevant course information. Please make sure to check the course meeting dates prior to applying. Some courses may overlap with your current academic year. You may also search for additional courses using the University Schedule Of Classes. Summer Scholars applicants are eligible to apply for courses that do not have prerequisites or restrictions. All mathematics, english, and non-introductory language courses will require a placement test. Summer Scholars applicants are not eligible to apply for chemistry or physics courses.

The 2021 Summer Session will be held as a fully online semester. Courses will be run using synchronous or asynchronous remote instruction formats.

  • Courses run using synchronous remote instruction will have scheduled meeting days and times. Students are expected to connect remotely during those times. These classes typically involve web conferencing.
  • Courses run using asynchronous remote instruction will have no scheduled class sessions. These courses will have a regular schedule of work and assignments due throughout each week, but will not require students to be online at a particular time. Rather, the instructor will provide materials—for example, readings, video content, presentations, lectures, assignments, and exams. Students will access these materials and satisfy the course requirements within time frames specified by the instructor.

You will receive additional information from your instructor on a course-by-course basis regarding any specific policies, procedures, and technology requirements for each course.

Dance Appreciation Online (07:203:131)Expand

Dance Appreciation Online is an introduction to dance as an art form, wherein students study the historical, cultural, social and performative contexts of diverse dance forms. Students engage with aesthetic, theoretical, and scholarly discourses aimed at illuminating how dance functions as a form of communication and personal, aesthetic expression.
