WesMaSS begins the summer before students’ first year at Wesleyan, and engages Scholars through two programs: 


Summer Virtual Program

late June and early July 2024

These few sessions in the middle of summer are an opportunity for all incoming WesMaSS students to meet one another and to meet the WesMaSS faculty before arriving to campus. Sessions will prepare new Scholars to navigate Wesleyan math and science courses – and introduce other exciting STEM opportunities at Wes!


Summer Virtual "Mini Courses"

July 29 - August 9, 2024

All Scholars participate in a two-week, part-time, virtual academic program designed to introduce them to academics in the sciences and mathematics at Wesleyan. Scholars will enroll in introductory math or science “mini courses” through Moodle, Wesleyan’s online course management system. These mini courses are not credit-bearing, and so they provide a comfortable space for students to explore Wesleyan academics. Scholars will watch recorded lectures and submit short assignments similar to those they will encounter during the academic year. Professors and Teaching Assistants will provide feedback and guidance to prepare Scholars for their trajectory through the sciences and mathematics at Wesleyan.  Scholars will also have access to additional resources and information to support them in making the most of the first semester.
