Around the Quads
Have you ever wanted to revisit the Core Curriculum? The Alumni Office, in cooperation with Academic Affairs and the Core Curriculum Office, is launching the next series of mini-Core Curriculum courses. The first semester will include sections of Contemporary Civilization, Literature Humanities and Frontiers of Science, which will meet three times on a biweekly basis, from 6:30–8:30 p.m. There will be a fee of approximately $250 per section, and attendance will be capped at 30 per section.
“Frontiers of Science: Other Worlds — The Frontier of Extrasolar Planets” will be taught by Professor of Astronomy David Helfand on Tuesdays beginning October 14; “Is Democracy Really ‘the Best Form of Government?’ ” will be taught by Core lecturer David Eisenbach ’94, ’06 GSAS, on Wednesdays beginning September 24; and “Core Moments at the Crossroads of Literature, Philosophy and Art” will be taught by Gustave M. Berne, Professor in the Core Curriculum, and Christia Mercer from the Department of Philosophy on Thursdays beginning September 25.
