Rigor, creativity drive Short Term

Bates’ Short Term has come a long way since it was established 40 years ago. This five-week spring session started out as an efficiency measure. It enabled Bates to get more use from its facilities, and enabled students to complete the Bates education in three years instead of four, if they so desired. (For more about the history of Short Term, see the article “May 1966: The first Short Term.”)

Short Term's a time for rigor, research…and Red Sox

Short Term at Bates is known among students for pressure-cooker courses like “Cellular and Molecular Biology,” aka “Cell Hell,” and “Introduction to Abstraction,” better known as “Math Camp.” But the academic offerings during these five weeks of spring have a reputation not only for rigor but for topicality, adventurousness and even, dare we say, for fun. And Short Term units new in 2005 are no exceptions.
