2021 Courses

Most CSU Summer Arts courses take place on the Fresno State campus, with three exceptions. The study abroad course "Contemporary  Art in Berlin" will take place in Berlin, Germany. "Acting Irish Theatre" will take place in Dublin, Ireland, and  "La Guitarra Española" will take place in Granada, Spain. 

When you enroll in a course you can earn three to six units of transferable undergraduate or graduate college credit. And 80% of our students receive some sort of scholarship assistance. Explore the courses below, or email us for more information at

registration for 2021 courses is open!

We hope to offer Summer Arts in person on the Fresno State campus for summer 2021. We expect to know if this will be possible by the end of March. There is no obligation to attend if you apply now and we either can't offer courses in person or you just don't want to attend. If we don't offer in-person courses, we will offer many courses online. We will contact you to see if you are interested in switching to an online version of your course, if available. 

If Summer Arts does not happen in person, and you choose not to attend an online course, you will be automatically withdrawn with no penalty. If Summer Arts does take place in person, and you simply do not wish to attend, you can email us any time up to the Friday before class starts to drop your class(es) with no penalty. We will send emails and reminders and keep you informed as we move towards summer 2021.​
