May and Summer Terms, 2022

Summer classes are available to current Hamline students, transfer students, and visiting students—you don't need to be a registered Hamline student to take advantage of summer courses! 

Hamline's May and summer courses are offered in a variety of formats, in-person, hybrid, and online. Choose your courses based on how and what you want to learn this summer:

  • Immerse yourself in condensed three-, four-, six-, or 12-week courses for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
  • Get ahead! Each course moves you 2 or 4 credits closer to graduation.
  • Earn one or two Hamline Plan letters with just one class.
  • Follow your curiosities and delve into a new topic. It’s what the liberal arts are all about!
