IHGC 3550Short Course in IHGC (1.00 - 3.00)
This will be a 4-6 week "short course" that students take on a humanities topic for a range of credit hours depending upon specific requirements of instructor(s). The Institute offers various seminars of this variety and so far all have been offered as 3559. This would create an actual place in the catalog for the IHGC "short course," which would have different topics but would always fit the format of a "short course"/seminar.
