We designed our 3-3 academic calendar to give our students both depth and flexibility in their academic pursuits.

In each of our three 10-week terms students take only three courses (hence the 3-3), giving them time and energy for a deeper level of study than what is often possible with a semester schedule. Each course is the equivalent of a semester's worth of work. Faculty members teach only two courses each term, giving them more time for one-on-one mentoring.

The long break between the fall and winter terms lets students engage in career and graduate school exploration, pursue an independent research project, take advantage of an internship, or pursue one of our off-campus study opportunities.
