Summer Programs

University College offers summer courses and programs that meet the goals and interests of a variety of populations, including current and visiting students. Summer courses are scheduled over five separate sessions, and many are offered in flexible hybrid or online formats.

Master of Science in Biology for Science Teachers

Note: As of Fall 2022, this program is no longer accepting new students.

This two-year program is designed to fit the schedules of working teachers. It consists of two summer institutes, three weeks each, in residence at Washington University. The remaining course work during the academic years is completed online. For more information, visit our MS in Biology for Science Teachers webpage or call 314-935-8974.

Summer Writers Institute

The Summer Writers Institute brings together writers of all levels from St. Louis and beyond. The program features workshops in various genres as well as panels, readings, craft talks, individual conferences with instructors, and a final open mic. Small class sizes encourage dynamic discussions and allow students to hone their craft and explore new approaches. Workshops are led by professional published writers who are experts in their fields and accomplished in providing constructive critique.
