With more students joining the public conversation on gender and society – from the campus “confidence gap” to the #MeToo movement – Newcomb Summer Session empowers students to put feminist ideas into social action. Through discussion-based seminars, workshops, and collaborative projects, students gain strategies for taking on leadership roles in and beyond the classroom, finding a public voice, tackling real-world social issues, and strengthening college applications.
Newcomb Summer Session offers courses in a two-week online format. Each course features a mixture of seminar discussions and collaborative projects. Students may take any course or combination of courses; all courses work synergistically to deepen students’ understanding of gender, leadership, and social change.
