Date & time
Pre-welcome week is designed for incoming master's students and features the American government module, math camp, and a career session for international students.
The American government module is a free non-credit course to acquaint incoming master's students—international students, and domestic ones in need of a refresher—with the U.S. political system. The module covers the basics of the American political system—Congress, the presidency, the judiciary, elections, lobbyists, interest groups, and the federal bureaucracy.
Math camp is a free non-credit refresher course on Algebra skills and concepts you will see in quantitative classes, such as microeconomics, statistics, and calculus. Everyone is invited to attend, and we strongly encourage it for those who haven’t had much math or haven’t taken any math since high school.
