New Short Courses

We are pleased to announce a new twist on our Enrichment Courses — Short Courses!

We plan to offer these Short Courses anywhere from four to ten weeks long, at different times and locations throughout the year. The classes will be lecture-based with no required outside reading or homework. Some of them will even be live-streamed so students can watch lectures on their own personal device anywhere, anytime — even from home or from around the world!

Please check back often to see what new Short Courses will be offered next!
