Application Extended for The Hertog Global Strategy Initiative Summer Program
The Columbia Department of History is seeking applications for its summer program on “The History and Future of Pandemic Threats and Global Public Health.” The application deadline has been extended to April 1.
The program will take place from May 24 through August 12, 2011. Students in the program spend the first two weeks of the summer in a “total immersion” seminar. The following eight weeks are spent conducting independent and team projects. In August, the class reconvenes and participants present their research and participate in group exercises. Students will receive eight credit points, the equivalent of two semester-long courses at Columbia.
The 2011 global strategy seminar will be taught by Matthew Connelly, Professor of History at Columbia University, and Stephen Morse, Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. They will be assisted in the classroom by a number of experts in the field, including world-class scholars and top government officials. Speakers and workshop participants will include Allan Brandt, Anthony Fauci, Peggy Hamburg, Laurie Garrett, DA Henderson, David Heymann, John Lange, George Korch, Randall Packard, Howard Markel, Joy Miller, Stephen Redd, David Rosner, Robert Webster, Vincent Racaniello, and Kavita Sivaramakrishnan.
Students from all departments are encouraged to apply. For more information or to apply, visit http://globalstrategy.columbia.edu or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications received after March 1 will be considered on a rolling basis.
