The January break between semesters doesn’t have to be the winter doldrums.
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is offering a wealth of short courses, seminars, and events designed to provide more work or more play, depending on your preference, from Jan. 4 to 24.
On the play front, the Center for Wellness is offering, among other sessions, “Massage Therapy 101” and the inviting “Eat What You Want: The Intuitive Approach.” The Dudley Arts Fellows will have Jazz in the Gato and a series of classic movies (including “High Noon” and “Roman Holiday”). There are ski trips to New Hampshire and an excursion to the musical “In the Heights” at the Boston Opera House.
On the work front, the Office of Career Services is offering its “Career Transition Workshop,” along with “Real Life Stories from the Academic Job Search,” and “Retooling: Job Search Boot Camp.” For something in between, you could sign up for a creative writing workshop or “Writing Boot Camp.” In addition, there’s a raft of Harvard College Library tutorials.
And, if you really want more academics, there’s a slate of science courses, including Cell Biology 330, Genetics 390, and Virology 330. There are other offerings as well. For more information, visit the GSAS Web site.
