Non-Credit, Residential Opportunities

Fairfield Pre-College Immersion Program

Fairfield University’s BASE (Broadening Access to Science Education) Camp engages female high school students in hands-on, research-based experiences in the natural sciences and mathematics, in an effort to inform and excite them about the process of science. The next BASE Camp will be held in July 2021.

Credit-Bearing Residential & Commuter Opportunities
