"The program includes four intensive two-week courses taught by university professors on topics that change from year to year. In the past, students have studied methods of argument, combinatorics, hyperbolic geometry, game theory, group theory, coding theory, and much more. In addition, there are twelve guest lectures on a wide variety of subjects and in many different formats, allowing students to glimpse even more mathematical areas as well as participate in hands-on mathematical activities. When not in class, students work on problems in groups or individually, have mathematical discussions with the Teaching Assistant Counselors, and participate in social events, sports, and weekly Saturday outings. They develop many new interests and close friendships, the end of the program coming way too soon."- SIMUW

"In the wake of the pandemic, PSJP has shifted to running an entirely virtual program for the summers of 2020 and 2021. For the first six weeks, students attend one lecture and two workshops each week taught by program alumni and journalists from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, The Daily Beast, Politico, Sports Illustrated and CNN, among other media outlets over Zoom. They also attend weekly discussion groups to further their understanding of core topics, as well as learning about the journey through college and into the field from our counselors. During the last week of the program, the week we would normally have spent on campus, students spend more time having critical discussions with renowned journalists on a variety of topics. As always, students engage with weekly readings on current events and report on different assigned topics throughout the course of the program, beginning in June, to publish the Princeton Summer Journal. Please review the 2020 Program Schedule for details on last summer's virtual program.
In addition to introducing students to the multifaceted world of journalism, PSJP is designed to immerse students in a residential experience at one of the best colleges in the country. Although students do not live on campus in underclassmen residence halls during the virtual program, they have the opportunity to attend sessions with renowned Princeton professors, as well as the president and representatives of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to experience Princeton’s approach to the liberal arts. During the last week of the program, students attend seminars on every aspect of the college admissions process, including writing personal narratives, choosing the best fit college, and understanding how applications are evaluated, and meet with colleges admissions representatives."
