Fairfield University Summer Classes Start May 20

Current Stags and visiting undergraduates looking to get ahead in their studies can register for more than 100 online courses offered in May, June, and July.

Fairfield University’s Summer Session provides current Stags and college students across the U.S. with an opportunity to catch up on credits, get ahead in their studies, complete a prerequisite for the fall, or focus intently on a challenging subject. Students have the option to enroll in one or more of 100 online courses offered in a wide variety of disciplines during three separate sessions in May, June, and July.

Summer courses are available in both five-week and two-week intensive formats and are taught by members of Fairfield’s distinguished faculty, a team of academic and industry experts with years of experience conducting flexible and engaging online classes in an intellectually stimulating and low-stress environment. 

In addition to core subjects like biology, English, history, and math, five-week undergraduates classes are also available in a wide variety of disciplines and professional studies including accounting, communication, engineering, and marketing. Some of the session’s most unique and popular course offerings include “Physics of Sport,” “History of Hip-Hop,” “Health Economics," “Graphic Novels as Chillers and Thrillers,” “Digital Marketing,” and “Business Ethics” among others.

The University’s two-week, intensive online summer classes kick off on May 20, and also cover an array of fascinating topics in sociology, politics, humanities, and business. Courses include a criminal justice system seminar that explores the inner working of the U.S. justice system; a technical skills course for liberal arts majors interested in pursing careers in business, publishing, and nonprofit work; a course that introduces students to the legal and social responsibilities of business; and a brand-new United Nations Security Council Crisis Simulation seminar that offers students a hands-on learning experience in world diversity. The objective of the course, which is offered as both a politics and international studies credit, is to introduce students to the challenges of global governance by simulating a UN crisis in international peace and security. For a complete list of available courses and class descriptions, visit the University’s website at www.fairfield.edu/summercourses.

Registration for all summer courses is open and available to current students at my.fairfield.edu. Course dates, times, and faculty are subject to change, so students are encouraged to check with the Registrar's Office for the most up-to-date information.

For additional details regarding course registration, pre-work, or course syllabi, students are encouraged to contact Sandy Richardson, program coordinator, at (203) 254-4000 ext. 2911 or arichardson@fairfield.edu.
