About

The University of Southern California is one of the world’s leading private research universities and home to an outstanding liberal arts college, an integrated academic medical center, and some of the best professional and arts schools in the country.

USC Summer Programs extends a tradition of excellence to outstanding high school students through a diverse offering of 4-week summer courses. Accepted students will balance academic and campus life as they prepare for college.

USC Summer Programs’ courses are taught by USC faculty and experienced professionals of the USC academic community. Our faculty create an engaging academic experience by combining lectures, hands-on workshops and labs, and guest speakers. Each course is designed to be more interactive, engaging and challenging than accelerated high school classes or the broad introductory courses offered by other summer pre-collegiate programs.
