Summer Sessions begin on May 21 and run through August 8. There are opportunities to study on campus or online, to explore a new path, travel abroad, or get a head start on next year.

"At Seton Hall University, we have such a diversity of summer course offerings. Perhaps you are a pre-college student hoping to get a jumpstart on your college career. Maybe you are a current or visiting undergraduate or graduate student wanting to fit in those classes taught by top faculty. Our summer sessions enable you to move ahead along your graduation path and fulfill your occupational goals," said Karen A. Passaro, J.D., Dean of the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies at Seton Hall.

"So many of our web-based classes are available for those wanting flexibility in their summer schedule. For those who want to combine coursework with world travel, we have International Study Abroad classes providing a first-hand global education destination. And we have offerings for adult professional learners wanting to advance their career and leadership skills," explained Dean Passaro. Pre-College offerings – for rising high school juniors and seniors – engage students in rigorous university-level coursework while earning college credit at a greatly discounted rate of three credits for $1500. Examples of subjects high school students typically study during the summer are Oral Communication, Microeconomics, and Introduction to Psychology.

College students may enroll in a wide variety of campus offerings from Media Law to the Search for Human Fulfillment, and from the History of Philosophy to Real Estate Finance. They also can use this time to explore emerging fields both on campus and on the web such as Mobile App Development and Supply Chain Management.

Or how about something where the classroom is the great outdoors? A featured course this summer is "The Art and Science of Fly Fishing" – ENVL 3053 (CRN: 22649) and CORE 3053 (CRN: 23327). This hybrid classroom/environment experience can earn you three undergraduate credits through the Environmental Studies Program while exploring the common themes of spirituality, purpose and the symbiosis of humans and earth as inspiration for countless works of art and literature.

Web-based courses including Forensic Biology, World History, Western Civilization, American History and the History of African Civilization, American Art, Theater as Cultural Dialogue, Principles of Marketing, Data Analysis, and Great American Speeches of Our Time are just a small example of flexible courses with wide appeal through Summer 2019.

Graduate students in the Stillman School of Business can register for Channels of Distribution. Additional graduate courses taking place this summer include Comparative Foreign Policy and something for which Seton Hall is known nationally: Sports Management.

Among the numerous faith-based web courses available are Creation and Science, Introduction to Catholic Theology and Christian Ethics.

Summer can be a time to learn face-to-face with faculty from around the world. The Office of International Programs offers many globally focused adventures open to college students who want to broaden their experiences beyond campus. For example, students can explore Chinese language and culture in Nanjing. Immerse themselves in the life of Rome and the culture of Italy or study French language and culture at the Sorbonne in Paris. The Tokyo, Japan exchange with Sophia University provides an introduction to a broad range of issues in Japan and Asia including language, society, economics, business, culture, religions, history and literature. This summer, students have an opportunity to study the inner workings of the United Nations at our weeklong summer program, the UN Summer Study Seminar, sponsored by the School of Diplomacy and International Relations.

The range of classes offered at Seton Hall is as wide as the ocean. Students are invited to take a deeper dive this summer and explore the depths of their own potential.
