Summer Session 2014

Have a productive summer!

Why take summer courses?

  • Take courses missed during the regular year
  • Concentrate on one or two particularly difficult courses
  • Take advantage of smaller classes and a more relaxed atmosphere
  • Change academic or geographic environments
  • Enrich your cultural and intellectual knowledge
  • Enhance your career prospects


Online and traditional summer classes are offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Registration for summer courses is open to current Wagner College students as well as students from other colleges (visiting students).

High school juniors and seniors are encouraged to enroll in our Summer Pre-College Program, a 3-week residential program to earn college credit while exploring an array of NYC venues.

All current Wagner students must see their advisor prior to registration. Wagner students may register for courses through myWagner. Late registration may be completed no later than the second day of classes with the permission of the instructor and the registrar. It is advisable to complete registration as early as possible prior to the beginning of a course, as the College reserves the right to cancel courses because of low enrollment.

Wagner College Internship Program

Open to Full-time Wagner College Students Only
The opportunity to study and gain work experience in New York City can add an important component to your education. The purpose of the internship program at Wagner College is to allow students to have a "learn by doing" work experience, supervised by faculty and professionals in the field. Internships are usually related to the student's major.The student has the responsibility to devote a minimum of 105 hours for one (1) unit or 210 hours for two (2) units. The work is to be performed on a regular weekly basis during the summer semester. The student will maintain a log describing day-to-day activities and the times and hours worked. A final paper in which the student evaluates the work experience will be submitted to the faculty advisor. The student's performance will be discussed with the internship supervisor at the host organization and the faculty supervisor will determine the final grade. The on-site supervisor will complete a written evaluation of the student's performance. For more information, contact the Center for Academic and Career Engagement at 718-390-3181.
