The summer session curriculum is planned with the diverse needs of the community in mind. Saint Martin's typically offers summer courses that reflect and complement the regular University curriculum, as available throughout fall and spring semesters.
During summer session, the Saint Martin's University faculty is joined by other professionals from outside the University community who offer courses in their own specific expertise.
