LLAIC Course Schedule - Fall 2019

Course Description and Course Leader Biography:  We urge you to read the course description carefully before choosing a course.

5-week courses: Note that there are several 5-week courses given in the first and second half of the semester (designated by 5a and 5b, respectively, in the course code). 

7- and 8-week courses: There are also a number of 7- and 8-week courses. They all start at the beginning of the semester (Sept. 10-12).

Two-class-period courses count as one:  Courses that extend over 2 class periods (such as a film course), count as one course. The fee is $150 for a two-period 10-week course, and $75 for a two-period 5-week course. The fee for the 8-week Literature and Film course is $120.
