Yale Summer Online

Yale Summer Online is an online course program that provides an opportunity for students to continue their studies in challenging online seminars that provide flexibility for summer plans. The courses are developed and taught by Yale faculty, offer Yale College credit, and provide extensive interaction with faculty and peers.  A central component to the learning experience is the synchronous discussion session, our virtual classroom technology allows the class to come together "face-to-face" each week to discuss course topics.  Combining our technology with small class sizes (20), students can expect strong personal engagement with faculty through rich conversation and thoughtful feedback.
