Norwich annually holds five Summer Sessions open to all students. There is a three-week Maymester primarly consisting of study abroad courses taught by Norwich faculty. There is a two-week Special Session that is devoted to special field courses. There are two, five-week sessions, and one ten-week session. Many of the summer courses are offered online.
Courses held on-campus feature small classes in a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere with a wide range of credit-bearing courses. Daily contact with the course instructor, together with a total focus on academic activities, enables students to earn better grades and to improve their research and study skills.
Online courses allow students to be located at home, or anywhere else there is access to the internet. Online courses are taught exclusively on the computer in specially designed “classrooms” where students are instructed by a Norwich University professor. Students who are self-motivated do well with this method of instruction.
Summer students commonly comment that they enjoy their courses and gain satisfaction and confidence from the Summer School experience.
