UNLV Summer SchoolScience & Math, the Arts, UNLV | Sandra | March 7, 2007 at 04:47
I just received the course catalogue for the UNLV summer term. Summer term is actually composed of three different sessions: Session 1, 3 weeks, May 14- Jun 1; Session 2, 5 weeks, Jun 4- Jul 6; Session 3, 5 weeks, Jul 9- Aug 10. As usual there are some great opportunities to enrich your mind and pursue some areas of interest, covering the material fairly rapidly.
I see that the Film Department is offering “Major Figures of the Cinema: James Bond” in Session 2 and “Major Figures of the Cinema: Clint Eastwood” in Session 3. I audited the Clint Eastwood course a couple of summers ago and enjoyed 3 evenings a week watching and discussing Eastwood films spanning his entire career, acting and directing, from spaghetti westerns to Million Dollar Baby. What a joy! Those classes are held in the evening, so you don’t have to be retired to take advantage.
Although the classes are certainly more academic than the more practical courses offered through the UNLV Educational Outreach Program, there are definitely some interesting selections, including Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Hatha Yoga, Tae Kwan Do, History of Rock Music, Survey of Afro-American Dance and US Military History since 1900.
Summer enrollment is open to admitted and non-admitted students, including high school students. For more information, call 702-895-3711, stop by Maude Frazier Hall, Room 104, 4505 Maryland Pky or visit the website: www.unlv.edu.
