Amherst College: Humanities Academic Boot Camp
July 30 - August 4
The above dates are tentative and subject to change.
This week-long humanities academic boot camp prepares service members and veterans for the challenges and rigor of humanities or liberal arts bachelor’s degree programs. Using the topic of American democracy to guide discussions and assignments, veterans and service members will learn foundational skills to help them succeed with their transition from the military to higher education.
During the week, students are taught by professors from our partner college and mentored by peers who have completed the program and have successfully transitioned to college.
