About the Program
Some participants use the Summer Study program as a study retreat, making use of the Divinity School library and quiet reflection on the quad. The world-class Yale Library system is open to visitors. Operating hours for all libraries are available here. Explore the Yale libraries and collections, services, and research tools at http://web.library.yale.edu/.
Many visitors spend time exploring New Haven’s cultural institutions, and discovering the resurgent restaurant scene.
The Summer Study program has no overall cost. All costs are directly associated with the courses or special events chosen by the participant. Payment is accepted online by credit card or by check.
