Maymester 2022 Opportunities

PL 310: Business Ethics

A study of the relevance of ethics to business, with special emphasis on the similarities and differences between business and personal life. Case studies and special readings cover such topics as the social responsibilities of business and the notion of the economic common good.

PS 399: Beltway Politics

The culture and community “inside the beltway” affect national identity and public memory as well as national politics and policy. Bringing students up close to the nation’s capital itself, students study the ways in which Washington, D.C. was planned, developed, and continues to function as a center for national conversation and governance. Interacting with actual political operatives, advocates, and policy-makers, students in the course explore Washington, D.C. as a “laboratory” of experience, taking in its culture and its lessons before contextualizing these lessons with subsequent readings that provide historical context and counter-examples to the lessons gleaned from the intensive laboratory experience.

CM 382: Introduction to Book Publishing

Contemporary print media from the publisher’s perspective, including editorial management, promotion, design, manufacturing, and new developments in the publishing industry.  Guest professionals provide deep insight into this still vibrant field.
