The Summer Institute in Lehigh University’s College of Education offers global students the opportunity to engage with professors and fellow students in an in-person intensive learning environment. The Summer Institute runs from mid-June through the end of July every year. Courses are offered in a condensed schedule over 5-9 days with a 2+ day break between courses.
M.Ed. International School Counseling students and M.Ed. Educational Leadership students take three courses each summer for two summers. International School Counseling Certificate students take two classes in one summer. Students are encouraged to take the recommended courses but may choose to take fewer classes each summer and return for additional summers.
We have been evaluating the options for our Summer Institute in 2022, and we have decided to offer the courses on Lehigh University’s campus in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. We will promptly communicate any changes to students if emerging variants or changing Covid regulations require us to adapt the Summer Institute. If you are accepted into one of the programs but are not able to travel to the US next summer, you can defer your offer of admission or your summer classes to the following year.
More information about the 2022 Summer Institute, including dates, course offerings, and registration information will be provided in winter.
In the past, first-year M.Ed. International School Counseling students were offered classes in Athens, Greece in even years (2016, 2018). We hope to return to an international destination in 2023.
