Prepare for a successful academic career

We are offering four different courses for Fall Quarter 2015:

  • Evidence and Controversy in Medicine
  • Race. Class and Gender in Sports Media
  • Smart-Phone, Small-Planet? Identity and Community in the Digital Age

These courses are great for freshmen, sophomore, and transfer students who are interested in improving their academic performance. Through these courses, students will be presented with interesting course material and will learn strategies to improve their note-taking, essay writing, reading, and study skills. As a part of the course, students will meet with a tutor-mentor three hours per week to work on class assignments and learn about university resources.  

*Section D will be reserved for English Language Learners (ELL) and recent immigrants.
