Comments: This course will be offered June 26-July 13, 2017; Monday - Thursday, from 8:30-11:45 a.m. Given the brevity of these 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.
