Summer Programs for Adults

At the age of 32 I am in the midst of a career change and I have always had a notion that I would like to explore architecture.  So, I am looking into some of the Summer 2012 programs to get a better idea of what the profession is about, and to build a portfolio.  I am finding that many of these programs are for high school students exclusively, are you aware of which also cater to adults like me?  I have looked at and liked the Harvard program because it addresses people of all ages, as does the City College of New York.  Any other suggestions?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

On is the list of summer programs that I compile each year and you are correct - most are for high school students.  However, the following are more for either college students and adults.

Aside from the summer program, consider LAIAD (in the list) as they have full semester and year long programs to assist students transition to architecture programs.

Do let me know if you discover others.  Best!
