Winter Session

Experience Winter Study at Wesleyan!

Winter Session 2017 is now complete! Email with questions or comments.
Information about Winter Session 2018 will be provided in August.

Wesleyan Winter Session is an intensive learning experience:

  • Complete a full-semester course in two weeks
  • Very small classes
  • Close relationships with faculty and fellow students
  • Immersive study and concentrated focus

Students considering a lighter course load in a future term, or who are thinking of graduating in three years -- or who simply wish to put their winter break to good use -- may want to make a Winter Session course part of their academic plan. Housing and meal plans are available.

Students complete reading and writing assignments before arriving on campus. Classes meet on a compressed schedule in January for the duration of Winter Session. 

A quieter campus, and a singular focus on just one course, allows students to connect more closely with faculty and classmates. These intensive courses provide opportunities for new insights as students engage with topics in a truly different format.
