January 6-16, 2020

The Dynamic Half Block provides for-credit and non-credit opportunities for students looking to capitalize on their winter break. During this nine-day period, students can explore unique courses and offerings that will challenge them to grow valuable habits of intellect, imagination, and professionalism.

Non-Credit Offerings

Build your résumé, complement your transcript.

The non-credit offerings in Dynamic Half Block provide a unique opportunity for students to explore interests and gain professional knowledge and skills. Participation in many of these offerings will increase your competencies making you more competitive for internships, graduate/professional schools, and full time jobs.


For-Credit Offerings

Develop your habits of intellect and imagination

For-credit academic offerings during the nine-day half block give students the opportunity to explore courses outside of their major and requirements, or to work closely with professors to delve deeper into a subject matter for which they already have foundational coursework. Students can earn 0.5 unit of credit towards the 32 required for graduation and tuition for half block is already included in the spring semester tuition.

Registration in SSB for Half Block will begin once the results of preregistration are posted on December 4, 2019. No points will be used and registration will be first come first served.
