January@GSAS Mini-Courses

The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences provides GSAS students the opportunity to take part in various activities during January@GSAS. This winter session typically takes place during the second and third weeks of January and offers topical workshops and seminars related to building research and professional skills. A number of non-academic activities, such as service projects and sports tournaments, are also offered.

The GSAS Student Council's contribution to January@ GSAS are Mini-Courses! We provide generous financial support, up to $750 per course, for graduate students to create the two-week course of their dreams. Courses can be related to a student's research interests, personal talents, or pleasures. In the past, the GSC was able to offer support for Mini-Courses covering topics in art, literature, math, and science, and they have ranged in topics as diverse as the history of dentistry, Sanskrit love poetry, and no-knead breadmaking. This year, we yet again ask interested students to submit their ideas for a January Mini-Course. If you're looking for some inspiration, browse our list of previous Mini-Courses.
