Information Sessions

If you have any questions or would like further information, please email precollege@rochester.edu.

Opportunities for Educators

We are looking for enthusiastic educators who are interested in working with high school students over the summer! University of Rochester faculty, graduate students, and alumni may propose courses for our non-credit Rochester Scholars programs or our Intensive Studies programs. For an idea of course descriptions, please visit our Courses page. This is a compensated position.

 

Class sizes are kept to a smaller size (typically no more than 20 students) to ensure that each student and the instructor get the most personalized experience as possible. The non-credit and Intensive Studies courses are more of a hands-on type of learning atmosphere where students can get a feel for various subject areas they are interested in. Course material should be challenging and interactive to give a college-like feel, but instructors should not provide students with large amounts of homework and projects. These specific courses do not give grades. The Pre-College Programs will provide instructors with any supplies they may need for each student in the class.

 

If you are interested in submitting a course proposal or are seeking additional information, please email precollege@rochester.edu.
