    May Term & Summer Term, 2021

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

    Hamline's May & 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 3-, 4-, 8-, or 12-week courses for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
    • Get ahead! Each course moves you 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!
