- Georgia State offers many summer and maymester programs led and taught by Georgia State professors.

Students participate in lectures, site visits, excursions, and tours as part of the program. These programs usually last between two and six weeks. Students find these programs a great way to really get to know their professors and other GSU students while earning GSU credits and grades.
