Summer 2016

Each year, MCLA designs summer course offerings for both traditional and non-traditional students. We continue to expand the number and range of online, hybrid, and evening courses offered each summer, striving to accommodate the busy schedules of working adults, undergraduates, and high school students. The summer 2016 catalog also offers professional development opportunities for educators and a variety of summer camps and sports clinics. The catalog underwent several minor updates in May 2016; please click the yellow 'Register' button to view the most up-to-date course schedule.

Summer sessions are the perfect time for current students to accelerate their course of study. High school students can get a head start on college with one of our highly transferable and affordable summer courses, while adult learners can begin exploring a return to school. Students who plan to transfer MCLA credits to another college or university should submit course descriptions to their primary academic institution before registering, and request an official transcript from MCLA upon completion of the course.

Additional summer programming options include:

MCLA also offers year-round programs for adult learners who are interested in earning a bachelor's degree or graduate credential:
These programs, offered in downtown Pittsfield one evening per week, are designed for busy adult learners who have an Associate's Degree or 45-60 credits of college coursework and want to complete a Bachelor's degree.
