The heart and soul of Helsinki Summer School is its wide range of fully-credited courses, all of which are taught in English. Helsinki Summer School offers courses for students doing their Bachelor's, Master's or PhD degree. The number of credits (ECTS) given varies depending on the scope of the course. Because of the demanding and intensive nature of our courses, students may be enrolled in only one course at a time.

This year’s summer school gives a great opportunity to deepen your knowledge for example in the themes of behavioral sciences, urban planning, environmental issues and design. You may choose your course preference from the following list.

The courses taking place in HSS 2014 are hereunder. For more detailed course information, please have a look at the course pages on the left.
