General Course Information

Summer 2022 syllabi, once finalized the week before classes start, will be posted under the course and textbook information on the side panel.

All courses run for 8 weeks, and provide a minimum of 180 in-class contact hours. Upon completion of the program, students wishing to transfer language credits to their home institution may request a transcript from UW-Madison showing their grades and academic credits, which should then be submitted to the appropriate office at the student’s home institution.

Model course descriptions and syllabi will be posted when available. They are intended to give a general idea of the different levels. Each summer the specific course content will be modified based on the instructor’s assessment of student ability and pre-program placement results.
