IMAGINE. EXPLORE. PREPARE.
Interim Studies provides students opportunities to be critical and flexible thinkers, to problem solve independently in the context of active and authentic learning environments, and tackle real-world situations by pushing their boundaries beyond a traditional classroom. Students get to choose how they will spend a project period at the end of the winter trimester. They select from a variety of faculty-led options that include off-campus travel within the United States and on-campus programs with some unexpected creative concentrations.
Programs range in size from small groups to individual projects depending on the student's interest. During Interim Studies, students learn real skills, push the confines of conventional learning, and find themselves doing things they never thought possible! Recent Interim Studies have included The Art of Comics, Winter Hiking, Exploring the Florida Keys, Designing an Escape Room, Learning How to Dog Sled, Architecture, Lifeguard Certification, and dozens more. (There really is something for everyone!)
Interim Studies offerings include a range of no cost, low cost, and some higher-cost options. Brewster works with third-party vendors to keep the added costs as low as possible, and the school makes financial aid available for students who complete the application process and meet the criteria for need.
