Would you like to teach about television? online media? computer-based gaming? digital photography? or the interconnections among them? Now you can!
For twenty years, Perspectives — one of two ExCollege peer-taught seminar programs for entering students — has focused on the movies.
It’s time for a change.
Starting this fall (2013), Perspectives will expand beyond film and invite rising sophomores and juniors to apply whose passions involve many aspects of “media culture.”
As importantly, teaching Perspectives can now be used as an alternative for CMS minors instead of a Senior Project.
The process for applying to be a Perspectives Leader has been reopened in order to accommodate people who want to take advantage of these new opportunities.
Interested? E-mail Howard Woolf (email@example.com) ASAP to set up a time to talk!
