Summer Study


We offer literature and culture classes as well as language classes during the Summer Quarter. 

Summer 2017 Language Courses*

We offer intensive Asian language courses in selected Asian languages that let you earn a year's worth of language credit (15 credits) in nine weeks. Classes are held DAILY from 8:30 to 1:00 (including lecture and quiz components). Each course covers roughly the same material that we offer in our equivalent nine month courses that span the entire academic year.  *(Please note these listings are preliminary, and subject to change)

Non-Language Classes

Special Instructions for those who wish to study Chinese in the Summer:

  1. You are required to fill out our online Chinese Language Evaluation Questionnaire. You need to be a registered Summer Quarter student in order to do this.
  2. After this process, one of our instructors will send you an add code via email that you will use to register for the class.
  3. Register for the appropriate Chinese language course using the online registration system as specified by the Summer Quarter. It is important that you register as soon as possible, since classes fill up quickly and add codes can be invalidated after a set period of time.
