The amount of homework varies for each summer program. For most courses, there is some homework, although it is not burdensome. In designing our courses we maximize the use of local communities and resources, making home assignments both fun and educational. Most classes have a final exam or assessment. You will receive a grade for each of your courses. You will also receive a grade for the program. Your participation in program workshops and events as well as your desire to get as much out of the program as possible is an important part of a study abroad experience.
