Summer Classes – Catch up or Get Ahead

Many of our own students and others currently attending other colleges and universities take summer classes to catch up or get ahead in their degree programs.

While the heart of any school is the traditional academic year, Mount Ida College creates learning opportunities through summer classes. These classes from a variety of programs are available to you as a community member, as one of our own students and  someone studying at another college or university, who has come home to the Boston area for the summer and would like to earn additional credits and transfer them toward graduation at your school.

Explore the possibilities! Contact our Director of Continuing Education Robin Melavalin at 617-928-4624 or Rmelavalin@mountida.edu to discover the classes that will fit your personal and professional interests.

Open to Everyone
You don’t have to be earning a degree here to enroll in summer classes. Everyone is welcome. We offer flexible and convenient options so you can take summer classes online or at our Newton, Massachusetts, campus – with easy access from Boston and surrounding communities.

It’s Affordable
You can save money by taking advantage of our career-focused summer classes for $475 per credit hour. That’s a significant discount over tuition costs during the regular school year. We invite you to learn more about our two summer sessions offering undergraduate and graduate courses. Summer is a great time to make Mount Ida a part of your life. Our friendly, inclusive community of students welcome you.

Professional Development – Advance your career – Explore new opportunities
Our continuing education team also welcomes working professionals from throughout the Boston area, who take classes to gain new job skills or switch careers. In addition, many local retirees seeking new adventures take classes for personal development.

Licensure – Program in Dental Hygiene
Our continuing education programs also serve the needs of Dental Hygiene professionals – with certificate and licensure preparation programs that teach key skills for career growth.
