University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign: Humanities and STEM Academic Boot Camp
June 18 - June 30
The above dates are tentative and subject to change.
The first week of the program is our humanities academic boot camp, which includes daily seminars taught by campus professors who are leaders in their field, readings and analysis of challenging texts on the tradition of American democracy, and morning discussions on each reading in preparation for seminars, writing workshops, and assignments.
The second week prepares service members and veterans for the challenges and rigor of a STEM bachelor’s degree program. Using a physics-based curriculum, veterans and service members will gain skills to help them succeed with their transition from the military to higher education.
During this two-week boot camp, students are taught by professors from our partner college and mentored by peers who have completed the program and successfully transitioned to college.
