In the Spring 2012 semester, USC Dornsife began offering a small number of 4-unit courses which took place during the four weeks after graduation. Now in its third year, there are 9 courses slated to be offered in 2014.
Maymester courses will appear in the Spring 2014 Schedule of Classes, but are stand alone offerings that provide exceptional opportunities for research and experiential learning off campus, throughout the United States, or even abroad. The course offerings may be found in Special Sections in the USC Catalogue.
Maymester courses will be officially part of a spring semester load – when students register for their spring courses, they have the opportunity to register for three courses for the traditional spring semester and one course in the Maymester.
