GSC Mini-Courses: It’s About You

The GSAS Graduate Student Council offers a series of noncredit mini-courses, taught by GSAS students for GSAS students, that will engage topics of discipline-spanning appeal.

These short courses, stimulating and smart, are designed for a diverse audience of nonspecialists, giving you a chance to step back from your own line of scholarly inquiry and step into other perspectives.
