Opened in January 2009, the Carl J. Shapiro Science Complex offers state-of-the-art teaching and laboratory facilities. In the Brandeis tradition, award-winning researchers share the new building with the introductory science classes. Both are served by the latest in technology and design. For more information, see the new science center here.
The reasons for taking summer courses are as diverse as the students who take them. Some might be:
- Focus on an especially challenging course
- Prepare to study abroad
- Work on a second major or minor
Sometimes the decision isn’t based on academic concerns at all. In times when summer jobs are sparse, it may make more sense for some families to invest today in advancing a student’s degree than having them remain idle for the summer.
Whatever your situation, the staff at the Brandeis Summer School have the experience to advise you and your family about the choices before you. Call or visit!
As we say on the Brandeis University Summer School website, our summer session is an open-admission program offering courses and special programs for college-level credit. Small classes taught by experienced and dedicated Brandeis faculty are the hallmark of these offerings.
Summer School provides the opportunity to experience innovative course formats, such as online offerings, evening classes and extended sessions to accommodate work and other summer activities. Summer courses at Brandeis fulfill the residency requirement for university degree candidates.
