Summer at Susquehanna means the flexibility of summer you need plus the same high degree of personal attention you expect here.

With nearly 50 courses online in a variety of areas, we have what you’re looking for – whether you’re already a student here, go somewhere else but are home for the summer or still in high school.

Our professors are committed to connecting with you and are available on Skype and email to answer your questions about their courses.

Pick from two intensive, four-week sessions, a regular seven-week session or a new self-paced session - take anywhere from one to 11 weeks to finish.

For students still in high school, this is a great way to get a feel for us and get Central Curriculum courses out of the way at a fraction of the price of full-time tuition.

Registration is easy, our credits transfer anywhere and you can complete most classes from the comfort of your home or anywhere else in the world!

Meet Some of Our Faculty

Matt Duperon

Teaches: Intro to Religious Studies and Intro to Asian Studies

"Teaching online during the summer lets me reach students in some very different contexts from when we're all on campus, and that opens all sorts of opportunities to apply ideas from class to our real, lived experiences."

Samya Zain

Teaches: Physics of Music and Introductory Physics I

"The idea at the heart of the summer program is to provide students with the opportunity to learn more, expand their horizons and develop interests beyond just their primary majors."

Lissa Skitolsky

Teaches: Justice, Philosophy After the Holocaust and Resolving Moral Conflict

"Philosophical inquiry is not simply my profession but also my passion.  I teach over the summer so that I can continue this inquiry in a more concentrated and personal way with a smaller group of students. "

Nick Clark

Teaches: Comparative Govt and Politics and Protecting Human Rights

"The Summer Session has served as a time for experimentation at SU, in which faculty innovate and explore new and dynamic methods for bringing a liberal arts education into the lives of our students."

More than 50 classes are offered during:

  • Intensive summer session I (May 22 to June 16)
  • Intensive summer session II (July 10 to August 4)
  • Regular summer session (June 19 to August 4)
  • Self-paced (May 22 to August 4)

Summer courses are administered under the same regulations governing student conduct during other sessions of the university.
