Looking for opportunities for career or intellectual development this summer? Many students want to enhance their internships with additional career advice and networking or want to add an intellectual component to their summer without a large time commitment. The free, weeklong summer seminars, hosted by the Institute for Humane Studies, offer the opportunity to engage in thoughtful conversations this summer and explore current issues from many perspectives.
Students passionate about effecting change in the areas of poverty, education, and many other policy areas would be interested in our topical seminars. Lectures and discussions will focus on the current state of affairs, persistent problems, and innovative solutions.
- Poverty & Prosperity, July 31-Aug 6, Bryn Mawr College
- Liberty & Current Issues, May 29-June 4, George Mason University
Two of our career seminars, focusing on journalism and K-12 education, combine practical guidance from working professionals with lectures on philosophical ideas and historical events related to the fields.
- Liberty & Education, July 30-Aug 1, Loyola College
- Journalism & the Free Society, June 5-11, Bryn Mawr College
A typical seminar day includes lectures and discussion groups, plus free time in the afternoon to enjoy the campus and a nightly social. Students can look forward to informative discussions that start in lecture break-out groups, extend into meals, and continue into the evening.
The application deadline is March 31 (those who apply by March 15 will receive a free book). To learn more, visit www.TheIHS.org/seminar. Flyers can be downloaded from www.TheIHS.org/flyers. We hope you will pass along information about our seminars to your students.
