Graduate Credit
The Summer Institutes have been designed as 3-credit graduate courses and are approved as such by the New York State Department of Education. The institutes meet for 45 contact hours, of which 30 hours consist of classroom instruction and 15 hours consist of outside work, including a course project which is due within two weeks of the institute end date. This is the same breakdown of hours for all of our graduate courses that are offered during the fall and spring semesters on a 14-week schedule, the only difference is that the summer institutes are offered on a more intense schedule.

The institutes are all listed with the course code, EDU 5900, which is part of our graduate course offerings in the Division of Education and can be used as an elective towards our Master of Science degree in Education. 

The general course description can be found on our website at: Since this is a special topics course, the specific course descriptions differ depending upon the topic. The description of the EDU 5900 courses offered as part of our Summer Institutes can be found in the attached brochure.
