Summer School

Summer School at Emory is the perfect opportunity to get ahead and prepare for the next step in your academic career. Many undergraduates use the summer to complete GERs, pre-professional or major requirements, explore a course in an area of interest or possible major, or prepare for study abroad.

During the summer, Oxford and Emory students' academic experience is enhanced by the presence of visiting students from other colleges and universities.

Maymester is comprised of courses shortened into a three-week format, allowing students to earn credit and pursue other summer opportunities. Due to the compressed timeline, additional summer courses can only be pursued during the second summer session.
