Comments: Summer 2018: this course will be offered June 25-July 12, Monday-Thursday from 8:30-11:45 a.m. Note: Given the brevity of these summer courses, it is essential that students come prepared to engage in learning the very first day. To facilitate this, each course has 'Pre-Class' work to complete. This generally includes reading and often requires a written essay to be submitted before or on the first day of class.
