Summer 2019: Learning by Seaside Park
Students Studying outside on a bench

The summer is a busy time by Seaside Park. The University of Bridgeport is anything but quiet during what many people call the lazy days of summer.
We believe that learning is a continuous process and does not take a break during the summer months. That said, we are emphatic that learning should be enjoyable.
Summer 2019 is no exception as we have special programs planned for students currently in high school or college.
College Courses
For both current UB students in good standing and for students in good standing at other accredited colleges, UB offers more than 200+ college-level courses that range from big data to criminology, to organic chemistry, to robotics and artificial intelligence, to jazz voice. UB has you covered. Two sessions are offered:  Session 1 (May 13 to July 6) and Session II (July 8 to Aug. 24). For a complete list of classes and to register, click here.
