  • Summer Online Courses Online courses offer a flexible alternative to attending the traditional classroom by delivering a variety of educational resources via the Internet.  Whether you’re working a summer job, leaving Bozeman for a few months, or just trying to fit an extra class into your schedule, you can still begin or continue your MSU education by enrolling in one or more online courses.
  • Summer Science and Mathematics Courses for Pre-Med Summer Session 2017 offers the following series of science and mathematics courses designed to meet the special academic needs of students who plan to apply to medical, dental, or other health professional schools. The scheduling for this series of courses has been developed to allow students to enroll in one of the Chemistry courses and one of the Physics, Mathematics, or Statistics courses during each of MSU’s two six-week summer sessions, thus enabling students to earn up to 16 science and mathematics credits in only 12 weeks.
  • Sustainable Food and Bioenergy Systems The Sustainable Food and Bioenergy Systems (SFBS) B.S. degree program is an exciting, innovative interdisciplinary program from Montana State University that promotes the sustainable production, distribution, and consumption of food and bioenergy. You will experience collaborative learning, directed coursework, and hands-on training.
  • Uniquely Montana A wide variety of special courses is available at MSU during Summer Session 2017, and we’ve highlighted a few of them here.  Many of these courses are offered only during the summer and take advantage of southwestern Montana’s natural environment; others provide professional development opportunities for teachers and coaches; still others offer unique experiences in archaeology.  There’s a little something for everyone—including selections in art, music, languages, theatre, geology, ecology, and gardening.
