Summer Block Courses

May 22 - June 12, 2019

Enjoy Beloit's vibrant campus at its best... in the summer!

Beloit Blocks offer participants the opportunity to immerse themselves in a fascinating topic, work closely with exceptional professors, fulfill various requirements, and earn 1 unit of college credit. During 3 weeks students and faculty engage deeply with issues in a way that is often not possible in the regular academic year when they need to balance multiple classes and commitments.

This summer we will offer eight courses on campus, one online course, and one international course in Rome, Italy.
