Our Exploration Courses provide students the opportunity to experience WashU from home over the summer. Through these online, noncredit courses, students explore a topic or subject through a series of interactive activities, lectures and discussions with pre-college peers from around the world. This program is ideal for students who are looking for the flexibility of an online summer experience and want to build college readiness skills.
In addition to course work, students in our Exploration Courses participate in specialized seminars, workshops, and academic support groups.
