Comments: Summer 2018: This course will be offered July 16-August 2, Monday-Thursday, 8:45-11:45 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.
