    Session 1 (In-Person) July 3 to July 16, 2022

    Pathways to Neuro and Health Sciences

    Have you ever wondered about the brain and how it works? How does it allow us to move, feel, think, and speak? How can we study it? Pathways to Neuro and Health Sciences is a noncredit program that will give you a deep understanding of the brain, one of the most complex systems in the universe. This class will cover not only introductory topics like the mechanics of the brain, but will also delve into subjects like neuropharmacology, human and animal senses, memory, brain imaging techniques, and language.

    Perspectives on World Politics: International Law, Development, and Organizations

    This course will delve into subjects that would interest any student fascinated in Political Science, International Development, International Relations, and many other areas of academia. The topics explored in this course engage with the two-way relationship between international politics and international law. This politico-legal system regulates and informs our understanding of phenomena such as war, humanitarian intervention, and transnational terrorism. Perspectives on World Politics provides students with an overview of certain key issues in international relations and international law and encourages them to think critically about the nature of international conflict, cooperation, and governance in the current world.
