Message from the Dean of Yale Summer Session

Each summer, Yale Summer Session brings together students from across the country and around the world to take Yale College courses in New Haven, online, or abroad, to study English through the English Language Institute, or to hone their craft at the Summer Writing Institute or the Yale Writers’ Conference.  Living together in Yale's residential colleges, students in New Haven share a vibrant community outside of the classroom. Students in online courses study with top Yale faculty, accessing our virtual seminar classroom from just about anywhere in the world.  YSS extends beyond the boundaries of Yale's New Haven campus as well, with more than 25 Yale faculty-led programs abroad in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe.

We hope that YSS will help you explore a new passion, ask new questions, and make new friends. Welcome!
