Summer School

Behold: The Hertog Political Studies Program:

The six-week curriculum will have three parts. First, the careful study, with master teacher, of seminal texts of political and social thought such as Exodus, Aristotle’s Politics, Plato’s Republic, Machiavelli’s The Prince, Tocqueville’s Democracy in America, and The Federalist Papers. Approximately four texts or four groups of texts will be covered. Second, the program will devote two weeks to the serious analysis of major public policy questions. Guided by outstanding policy analysts, students will carefully examine two elective-based issues. And third, a series conversations with distinguished speakers.

Also: they pay you. It’s like reverse tuition.
