2011 International Summer Schools

For the past five years, a growing number of citizens interested in international affairs have taken part in the International Summer Schools of the Centre for International Studies at the Université de Montréal (CERIUM).

These intensive seminars, taking place over six days and led by a dozen experts, are open to graduate students, undergraduates (under some conditions), concerned citizens, members of NGOs, business people and other members of the public.

It is possible to register weekly or daily, focus on a theme by enrolling in a variety of seminars offered simultaneously or obtain a pass providing full access to all of the seminars offered in the summer program.

CERIUM’s International Summer Schools will be held from July 4th to July 16th, 2011.

For students, our summer schools count for three credits at the Masters level and are open, under some conditions, to those in their final undergraduate year. In many cases, additional seminars may be taken by credited students. These are usually offered immediately prior to and after the conference week.

CERIUM offers also distinct but simultaneous versions of its summer school seminars in French.
