2014 Summer Language Program
The Graduate School will sponsor intensive courses in selected foreign languages during the summer of 2014. The courses provide a general introduction to language and assist graduate students in acquiring a reading proficiency normally adequate to satisfy departmental language requirements. This means that the student will come away with a basic knowledge of the language and the skills to read it. Certification of successful completion of the course(s) will be provided by the Graduate School.
Classes will meet five days a week from 10 a.m. to noon during the six-week periods of June 9-July 18 and July 21-August 29. Courses in both sessions are taught at the same academic level. There must be a minimum of 15 students enrolled in order for a class to be held. Enrollment will be limited to 18 students per class.
Priority enrollment goes first to Princeton graduate students, followed by Princeton Theological Seminary graduate students, and then all others. Please keep in mind that these are intensive courses and have a high workload. Be prepared to minimize conflicts that may interfere with attendance during the six-week period.
Registration will begin at the end of January 2014. The registration deadline for all students is Monday, April 14.
Princeton Theological Seminary students must complete a release form with their registration and deposit.
Assuming sufficient demand, two classes each of French and German, and one class of Latin will be offered.
Tuition is $550 per course. Applicants should complete the registration form and mail a nonrefundable $300 deposit (to be applied to the total) for each course. Cash or check payments only. Please note that only online registration will be accepted.
Checks should be made payable to Princeton University and mailed to: Summer Language Program, Attn: Alyssa Martillotti, The Graduate School, Princeton University, 111 Clio Hall, Princeton, NJ 08544. Please note that if you do not pay in full, remaining tuition is due by Friday, April 25. Confirmation of your enrollment and course dates will be emailed to you by Friday, May 2. Enrollment cannot be confirmed until full tuition has been received.
No refunds will be available if a student withdraws from a course at any time. If a course section has been either filled or cancelled, applicants will be notified and their fees refunded.
