Global Institute 2022

The Summer Institute offers global students the opportunity to engage with professors and fellow students in an in-person intensive learning environment. The Summer Institute runs from late-June through the middle of July every year. The in-person classes are condensed into a week-long format with coursework extending through the end of summer. The Summer Institute will be offered in Europe in 2025, in Bethlehem PA in 2026, and in Asia in 2027. 

International School Counseling certificate students and College Admissions Counseling certificate students take two in-person classes in the summer. International School Counseling master’s students take two in-person classes and one online class for two summers. Masters students who would like to apply for school counselor certification in Pennsylvania are required to attend a Summer Institute in Pennsylvania. Students are encouraged to take the recommended courses but may choose to take fewer classes each summer and return for additional summers.
