We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to study with an individual who has been at the heart of the development of mass communications – television and movies in particular – for over 50 years.
This seminar is an intellectual inquiry into the development of American public policy as it relates to mass communications. It is not a practicum, not a "how-to" seminar about film and television, or not about the media generally.Read more...

Join SAS Honors Program students in Costa Rica! Funding Available!
Interested in the environment, science, entrepreneurship, international study, or sustainable development? Join the SAS Honors Program on the GREEN program in Costa Rica, a two-week, 3-credit- course offering an unparalleled introduction to the cutting-edge industry of renewable energy. This dynamic, interdisciplinary program is offered in collaboration with GREEN (Global Renewable Energy Education Network), a Rutgers-founded organization that introduces students to hands-on study and career-building networking in the field of clean energy and sustainable development.
Costa Rica is a safe, inviting country, with no standing army and a non-nonsense approach to environmental conservation. Famous for its rain forests, unique indigenous cultures, and environmentally-conscious economic development, Costa Rica is also a leader in renewable energy production and implementation. Over 90% of the country’s national energy consumption is produced by renewable sources -- wind, geothermal, solar, hydroelectric, and sustainably organic energy sources.
Climb volcanoes, hike to wind farms, participate in all-access guided tours of energy facilities, and hear from leading green engineers and professionals. All participants will also take part in cultural and adventure activities, and join teams for service learning projects in local communities.Read more...
