One Course Summer Institute 2020

Cornell College recently announced the class roster for this summer’s One Course Summer Institute. High school students who will be juniors, seniors, or recent grads this June are invited to learn what it’s like to take a college-level course and study on the block plan. Cornell summer courses are slightly shorter than a regular semester course but still award three credit hours (¾ Cornell credit) of college level coursework. Students who successfully complete the institute and choose to attend Cornell will also earn a $4000 scholarship to be awarded $1000 per year for up to four years during their course of study.

Students who attend the institute June 21-July 8, 2020 will be fully immersed in college life and what it’s like to help build a community at the college level. They will attend classes from roughly 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. daily, have blocks of study time between classes and after class, and be encouraged to participate in community activities and study in the evenings and on weekends.

Courses for the 2020 summer institute include as series of intriguing topics with engaging professors:

17 Days Later: Zombies, Brains, and Basic Neuroscience (Psychology)
DIY Genetic Engineering (Biology)
Electronics for Everyone (Physics and Engineering)
Before Instagram: Shooting with Film (Studio Art)
