Skip to Main Content


  • View all courses provides an unfiltered list of all summer session courses.
  • Hybrid courses reduce in-class meetings with online, out-of-class, or interactive learning activities, and may require more independent learning.
  • Online courses emphasize self-directed learning using web-based software. Courses may be offered synchronously (at a designated log-on time) or asynchronously (all work is completed individually on your own time). Check with the course instructor for specific details.
  • GEP courses explore a variety of academic disciplines essential for a well-rounded citizen. UMBC degree seeking students must meet GEP requirements before graduating.
  • Evening courses provide flexible scheduling options.
  • Shady Grove courses are a convenient option for students living in Montgomery County and the surrounding areas to take UMBC classes without driving to the main campus. During summer session, classes at the Universities at Shady Grove are open to¬†all UMBC students.
  • Courses with prerequisites require successful completion of (or current enrollment in) specific courses identified in the schedule of classes. Special permission may be required, especially for visiting students.

Syllabi Archives

The course syllabi available in these archives are from previous summer and winter sessions, and should only be used as a planning tool.

  • There may not be an archived course syllabus for every course offered during the current session.
  • An archived course syllabus does not guarantee the course will be offered during the current session.

Academic integrity

Academic integrity is an important value at UMBC. By enrolling in a course, each student assumes the responsibilities of an active participant in the scholarly community in which everyone’s academic work and behavior are held to the highest standards of honesty. Rigorous standards allow UMBC students, faculty, and administrators, as well as scholars and employers in the larger community, to trust that the work that students submit is the fruit of their own learning and academic effort.
