Course Schedule

LLAIC Course Schedule - Fall 2020

All courses will be conducted with Zoom video-conferencing. 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).

6-week, 7-week and 8-week courses: There are also a number of these courses. Most but not all start at the beginning of the semester.

Two-class-period courses count as one (there are none this semester):  Courses that extend over 2 class periods (such as a film course), count as one course. The fee is 50% greater than for a single class period course.
