A Class of Your Own

The Experimental College is accepting applications for course offerings for the spring 2010 semester

The Experimental College at Tufts University is looking for a few good instructors—and classes—for the spring 2010 semester. Instructors teach small, discussion-based courses that promote active learning and engage Tufts undergraduates in exploring ideas and experiences.

In the past, classes that have been well received include those focusing on cultural studies, current affairs, technology, film, law, world religions, business and health care. Some examples include Drug Addiction: Medical and Social Approaches, taught by Susan Moner, an assistant clinical professor at the School of Medicine; Introduction to Game Development, taught by Ming Chow, E02, E04; and Digital Democracy in the 21st Century, taught by Josh Goldstein and Patrick Meier, both students at the Fletcher School.

For the spring 2010 semester, 20 courses will be chosen from a very competitive pool. Classes meet in the evening, and run for 13 weeks. The application deadline is Friday, October 9.
