Sophomore College offers sophomores the opportunity to study intensively with Stanford faculty for several weeks before the beginning of Autumn Quarter. Students immerse themselves in a subject and collaborate with peers, upper-class course assistants, and faculty in constructing a community of scholars. They are also encouraged to explore the full range of Stanford's academic resources both in workshops and individually. Sophomore College is characterized by an atmosphere of intense academic exploration. Each Sophomore College course enrolls twelve to fourteen students, who live together in a Stanford residence and receive two units of academic credit. Courses are announced in March, and applications are due in April. For more information or to apply, see
