Short-Term Program for Graduate Students
Students who have completed their undergraduate degree, or are current master's students, and would like to further their studies are welcome to enroll for a semester or year in the International School. These students have the opportunity to enrich their studies by designing a directed-reading course or independent research project in a topic of their choice. This program is ideal for recent BA graduates and current graduate students who want to explore subjects they were unable to study in their undergraduate degrees, are looking for more experience before applying to a graduate program, or want to do independent study abroad.
Students are expected to take between three to five courses each semester. In addition to the courses that we offer, students in the short term graduate program are welcome to enroll in any of our specialty programs: Honors in Psychology; Honors in Peace & Conflict Studies; the Global Law Program; and the Internship Program. All of the courses in the International School are taught in English and are fully accredited.
