If you are enrolled for either class, I would love to hear from you regarding topics you might like to cover in class. Both of my courses are open to all UConn students from all majors and provide opportunities to choose your own topics to explore. I have provided links to books you are required to purchase as they can be found at a lower cost online (I provide these well in advance so you can shop around). Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions about either course.
