RBS Moves to All Online Offerings for Summer 2021

Owing to the status of the COVID-19 vaccines, Rare Book School has decided to transition from offering a combination of in-person and online courses to offering courses only online in 2021. 

We will still offer a full roster of courses this summer. In addition to the online courses already listed on the schedule for 2021, students can look forward to many more listings over the next few weeks. All online courses will be primarily synchronous in nature, with most meeting for approximately 22 hours in a single week via Zoom between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday–Friday. In addition, we will be adding a number of shorter 10- and 6-hour courses to our schedule (at lower prices), each meeting for just 2 to 3 hours a day for a few days during a single week. 

As we prepare to roll out additional courses and share more details about the online delivery, we invite and encourage everyone to check out our Course Schedule regularly for updates. This webpage lists course dates and topics, as well as important information related to the application process, particularly for those students who submitted an application prior to 1 February. For more information, we encourage everyone to visit the Course Application page for details about admissions. For information on fees and other related costs, please visit the Program Costs page.
