- The University of Miami is a private coeducational research university comprised of three campuses. The main campus is situated in the heart of beautiful and historic Coral Gables. Medical campus is near downtown Miami at Jackson Memorial Hospital and the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences is on Virginia Key next door to the Miami Seaquarium.
- The University of Miami offers high school students who have completed their sophomore or junior year a chance to choose from one of the following Summer Scholar Programs: Art-Design & Images, Broadcast Journalism, Filmmaking, Forensic Investigation, Global Politics, Health and Medicine, Marine Science and Sports Management.
- Known for its outstanding faculty, groundbreaking research, diverse student body, and history of excellence in athletics, the University of Miami is the largest private research university in the Southeast. The University's Summer Scholar Programs, established in 1991, are taught by outstanding University of Miami faculty members and present a unique opportunity for students to earn college credit in specific areas of concentration.
- The length of each class varies depending on lab work, field trips, and lectures; however, summer scholars are in class-related activites all day. Though the Summer Scholar Programs are challenging academic programs for students, evening and weekend activites are also scheduled, which allow students the time to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow scholars and experience the tropical flavor of the region. Excursions to local hot spots, a snorkeling trip, and the opportunity to take advantage of the University's facilities, such as the wellness/fitness center, are available during the students' free time.
