Summer term at the University of Minnesota, Morris (UMM) provides numerous opportunities for degree-seeking students, nondegree-seeking students, and members of the community to enroll in a variety of college-level courses. As a fully accredited undergraduate institution located in west central Minnesota, UMM makes it easy for students from the Morris campus and from other colleges, and for citizens of the area to enroll in one or more summer term courses. Registration begins on Wednesday, March 24, 2010.

Morris campus faculty teach courses during summer term, which includes a three-week intensive May session from May 17 through June 4 a five-week summer session I from May 24 through June 25 and a five-week summer session II from June 28 through July 30.

For current college students, summer term courses benefit those who would like to accelerate completion of a degree, make up lost credits, and/or work while earning credits. For potential college students considering beginning a program or for those looking for an opportunity to explore a new topic, the summer term schedule offers a concentrated time frame.

Summer term includes courses in literature, education, psychology, statistics, history, Spanish, anthropology, political science, art, anthropology, writing, geology, software design, environmental science, fitness, music, and a new course called Renewable Energy with Biomass Gasification.
