Opportunities for High School Students


The Stanford Summer Humanities Institute is a three-week, residential enrichment program that allows students in grades 10 and 11 to dive deep into the humanities. Students explore rich fields of inquiry that are rarely taught at the high school level, with courses ranging from the history of revolutions to the nature of evil, from contemporary racial politics to the literature of ancient Rome.

All Stanford Summer Humanities Institute courses are taught by Stanford faculty members, who create these unique summer courses based on their own research and the classes they teach to undergraduates at Stanford. All students live on campus in Stanford dorms, take classes at the Stanford Humanities Center, and explore Stanford’s libraries and museums.

Stanford Summer Humanities Institute is a part of Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies which offers programming year-round for pre-college students around the world in a variety of subjects. Questions >>
