About Summer Session

The Arts & Sciences Summer Session provides students the opportunity to explore, innovate, and immerse in rich academic experiences. Your coursework will challenge you to push beyond the boundaries of traditional learning.

Choice and flexibility matter - which is why our summer courses are a perfect fit. We can help you accelerate your degree program, wrap up major and minor requirements, satisfy your intellectual curiosity, or simply dive into something new.

With more than 100 course options available in four sessions, you will enjoy flexible scheduling and the intimacy of small seminar-style classes led by distinguished faculty.  We carefully structured the curriculum to allow you maximum engagement with your instructor, with other classmates, and with the broader St. Louis community.
