We are thrilled to open our online summer courses for the first time to all undergraduate students outside the current and incoming Spelman student body. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to join the Spelman community, earn college credit over the summer, and find out why we are consistently the #1 HBCU and Top 10 in several U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges lists.

sunWhy Take Summer Courses at Spelman College?

Great question! We think you'll find many benefits to taking Spelman's Summer Online Courses. Here are just a few:
  • Experience a virtual HBCU space
  • Learn a subject through different lens
  • Catch up, stay on track, move ahead
  • Spread out courses
  • Discover new passions
  • Meet new friends

"My time in African Diaspora & the World was a truly transformative and insightful experience. After my first semester, I felt more than ever challenged to seek out more about the world around me. I learned to be more critical of normally-held understandings of my place in the world. By my second semester, I constantly brought ideas from ADW into my everyday conversations. It felt almost impossible to engage with my environment in the same way I used to. I can truly say that ADW changed my way of looking and of being."
