LIU-Southampton Summer Programs

Southampton College Summer High School Workshops
High school students can get a preview of college life through Southampton College's summer high school workshops.  Participants live on campus and explore all that we have to offer – including working with some of our outstanding professors, learning about an advanced subject, meeting students and staff, and using our facilities. 

All workshops are hands-on experiences.  The morning is usually spent in the studio, lab, or classroom and the afternoon is in the field.  Participants are housed in special high school workshop residence halls with program counselors. 

Workshops include:

Advanced Creative and Critical Composition


This Advanced Creative and Critical Composition program is designed to focus on the mechanics of writing.  Students will be exposed to task-oriented writing.  Mornings will be spent in the classroom, while afternoons may be spent in the field for inspiration and completion of writing assignments.

Environmental Field Studies


The workshop is designed to introduce students to the variety of terrestrial and marine environments on Long Island and their collective resources.  Trips to pine barrens, salt marshes, water treatment plants, are planned.  Students will explore relevant issues and problems facing these resources as well as solutions that have been implemented or proposed to safeguard or restore them.  The majority of this workshop will be outdoors.



A comprehensive, interactive workshop for high school students interested in brain-behavior connections.  Participants will be introduced to topical areas in Psychobiology: the study of the biological basis of behavior, learning, and memory.  Classroom lectures, laboratory exercises, and field trips will be used to demonstrate scientific investigation of human and animal behavior by biologists, psychologists, and neuroscientists. 

Marine Science

7/11 - 7/16, 7/18 - 23, or 7/25 - 7/30

This unique one-week field experience will provide participants with an introduction to marine science.  The program will cover topics in marine ecology, coastal geology, oceanography, and ichthyology.  Approximately one day will be devoted to the study of each area.  Field trips aboard college vessels and vehicles will be included in each day's work. 

Young Writers Workshop

7/18 - 7/23

Writers and Writing is a week-long introduction to college-level creative writing and the English program at Southampton College.  Students learn to develop their own creative writing skills under the guidance of a resident writer.  The week will also feature visits to local sites of literary and historic significance. 

Advertising/Graphic Design Portfolio Building Workshop

8/2 - 8/6

Students will learn how to create graphic design page layouts with an emphasis on creative problem solving through a greater understanding of page layout, typography, and color.  Through hands-on computer based design solutions you will learn your way around the printed page. 


8/2 - 8/6

A prelude to post-high school study, this class serves as an excellent primer for the rigors of university-level training.  In a series of easily manageable lessons, you will be introduced to complex drawing instruction.  The basic elements of drawing — line, mass, and proportion — are presented in a clear and concise manner.  The sheer joy of drawing is stressed, and the atmosphere is geared toward fostering artistic interests and portfolio development. 

Media/Communication Arts

8/8 - 8/13

Through this hands-on workshop, you will be introduced to various career opportunities in media industries.  Topics may include public relations, video and film, print journalism, and radio and television.  Students will produce a finished project in one of these areas.  Excursions to media establishments and guest speakers round out the program. 


8/8 - 8/13

An intensive workshop for high school students entering their junior or senior years.  You will focus on developing work that is suitable for inclusion in a portfolio.  Topics will include the science behind making a photograph including format, darkroom techniques, developing and enlarging black and white film, composition, content and the meaning of imagery.  Indoor and outdoor shooting sessions are included.  Some equipment will be supplied.  Students should bring a 35mm camera. 

The cost of each one-week residential workshop is $675.00.  This fee includes room and board, tuition, and most supplies.  Upon successful completion of a workshop, participants will receive certificates of achievement.  Applicants should be high school students entering their junior or senior year in fall 2004 and have a combined PSAT/SAT score of at least 1000, a composite ACT score of 21, or an average of 85 in course work and submit a writing sample (essay or school research paper).
