The public is invited to an open house Aug. 11 at Vanderbilt University to hear presentations on the fall classes offered by its graduate degree program for working adults.
Course offerings for the semester include the study of Russian cinema, American slavery, economics, fiction writing and ethics.
The Master of Liberal Arts and Science program at Vanderbilt offers once-a-week classes designed for working adults who wish to continue their education on the graduate level. The price per course is half the usual graduate tuition rate at Vanderbilt. University employees are eligible for a further 70 percent discount.
The fall 2011 courses are:
– Russian Cinema, led by Konstantin Kustanovich, associate professor of Slavic languages and literature
– American Slavery and Slave Resistance, led by Richard Blackett, Andrew Jackson Professor of American History
– American Economic Growth and Development, led by Jeremy Atack, professor of economics
– Fiction Writing Workshop, led by Wade Ostrowski, lecturer in English
– Human Existence, Faith and the Question of Ethics, led by Charles Scott, Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Philosophy
A Capstone Workshop for veteran MLAS students will also be offered, which involves an independent project.
The open house is 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11, in Room 103 of Wilson Hall on the Vanderbilt campus.
