Why Take a Course at Yale?

Studying at Yale gives students a newfound appreciation for their academics and offers an opportunity to forge friendships that will last a lifetime.  Students come to Yale Summer Session to:

  • Earn credit toward their major and fulfill requirements for their degree
  • Explore a new field or topic
  • Focus intensely on one particular subject
  • Study with Yale faculty
  • Prepare for the challenges of highly selective colleges

Our application for Summer 2024 courses and programs is now closed. The 2025 application will open in mid-January 2025.

Tips for Choosing a Yale Summer Session Course

  • Online courses are marked as such in the course description. If there is no indication, the course is offered in-person. Online course numbers end with an "E."
  • Some courses have pre-requisites. To enroll, your transcript must show that you have met the prerequisite(s).
  • Course numbers do not necessarily indicate the level of the course. If a course has no pre-requisites, it is open to any student.
  • Some courses are not open to high school students. Check course descriptions.
  • There is a two course limit per session.
  • All courses are in Eastern Daylight Time (UTC -4).

Course Syllabi

2024 course syllabi will be posted beginning in March as they are received from the instructors. These are meant as a reference and are subject to change before the session starts. You should refer to updated versions from your instructors once admitted to your course(s).
