Hobart and William Smith offer three summer programs to students: Maymester, Summer Session, and the Summer Bridge program.
Maymester and Summer Session are open to all students. Maymester allows students to take one course with an HWS faculty member for 3.5 hours, five days a week. During he Summer Session Students can take one or two courses for 2 hours a day per course, five days a week during the period. The Summer Bridge program is a five-week academically-intensive summer residential program for incoming first-year students.
The First-Year experience would not be complete without its quintessential Seminar. Without regard for future major or minor choices, seminars were constructed around different faculty interests - from peace movements to ancient warfare, Mozart and rock-and-roll. Each seminar is designed to hone writing, speaking, critical thinking and other academic skills that students will draw upon throughout their careers at HWS.
