15 Summer Courses in History 2020

Students looking to get ahead in their schooling often take a variety of classes as part of their summer courses. This type of interim education can also assist those who are already in a specific career, but need to find ways to continue increasing their learning.  

History can involve studying one people, culture, or country in particular, but it also often involves general overviews of broad trends. Students of history may be required to conduct research in a specific topic.

The LAS Summer Academic Program consists of two streams. The first, our “Accelerator” program, provides a clear focus on core school subjects. The second, our “Explorer” program, allows students to discover a range of fascinating topics that support the development of key skills in, particularly alternative subjects. Both programs bring the classroom out into the real world in order to take what the students have learned and apply them to practical situations. Students will select two courses from any of the subjects offered.

Accelerator courses offered – Summer 2018 Mathematics

Mathematics is prevalent in almost every aspect of our lives. Math theories, concepts, and principles are the foundation of the economy, time, measurements, engineering, and even the arts. For this reason, it is clear that students need to have a solid working knowledge of mathematics. This course is designed to strengthen students’ math comprehension. Not only will it expose students to the way math is used in science, technology, and engineering, it will also help students understand statistics, practice reasoning skills, and strengthen their critical thinking....

The end of Second World War (1939-1945) marks a turning point in the history of East Europe. The Iron curtain and the Cold War divides Europe in two parts. The new socialist, pro-Soviet regimes to the East put the region in isolation from political and economic consensus of Western Europe – the so called Eastern Bloc is created. The ideology of communism is imposed in all spheres of public life and it lasts almost half a century. As in all any other eras, culture and art are a mirror of social processes and for 45 years in East Europe they remain highly subordinate to the communist ideology and controlled by the ruling Communist parties. Today the most visible and intriguing evidences of this period are the giant monuments and monumental complexes built to last along with the Communist states. After the collapse of the socialist regimes in East Europe many of these monuments lost their meaning but still deserve attention for their monumental aesthetics and artistic value. Being abandoned and left with no or poor maintenance they slightly crumble down and disappear from the public memory while the ongoing debate about their destiny in East European countries has not finished yet. During the Cold War Bulgarian art culture exists on the curious border of overlapping multiple centres. Between East and West, local and global, Bulgarian art and architecture create their most successful projects in the period as domestic interpretations of the global trends at the time. As a result one... [-]

Overview

Central Europe has been a flash point in world history for centuries. Control of the area has been contested both by imperial powers – above all Russia, Austria, Germany – and by the smaller nations in between. Two world wars started in the region. To this day, the legacy of these conflicts and the resulting attitudes still have a major impact on the policy of countries from Russia to Poland to Germany.

We will travel to Krakow, Poland’s cultural capital, and once the capital of the progressive Polish Kingdom that once housed the majority of the world’s Jews. Students will visit Kazimierz, Krakow’s Jewish quarter, which is one of the best preserved in Europe. We will see the former Ghetto area, the famous Schindler Factory, and tour Auschwitz-Birkenau. We will also discuss the current revival that Jewish culture is undergoing in Poland, as new festivals are launched and the local Jewish community grows, develops, and becomes part of a larger, successful Poland. We will also travel to Berlin to discuss how Central European issues continue to influence security policies worldwide. Berlin has profoundly influenced the politics and culture of the 20th century. Days in Berlin will include trips to the Reichstag, Stasi Headquarters, the Bauhaus Museum, the former Wall and Checkpoint Charlie. Alexandra Richie, author of Faust’s Metropolis, will lead students on a journey through the city showing both the tragedy and the triumph of the German capital.... [-]

For much of the 19th and 20th century, Britain was the world’s superpower, and its imperial connections not only left deep traces in America, Africa and Asia but also in Britain itself. Thus to understand modern British history it is necessary to see it in a global perspective: not only were British politics and economics influenced by imperial considerations but also most of its wars were global conflicts. Furthermore, British culture – food, fashion and architecture – was, and still is, shaped by its imperial legacy. By combining political, social and military history, this module introduces you to the key developments, ideas, events and people that shaped modern British history.
