A summer course is a class taken during the summer break of a university. These courses are typically finished in no more than two months, and are offered in a wide range of subjects. Courses in humanities, including history, are very popular and are offered at many institutions.

What is a summer course in history? These intensive courses are offered by the university to present opportunities that may not be available during the regular academic calendar. While some students may use summer courses to catch up or get ahead academically, many summer courses offer highly specialized and focused programs. These classes include interesting topics such as games and history, museums and memorial sites, music in contemporary history and society, and the history and heritage of specific cultural and ethnic groups.

History students gain invaluable perspective on the world around them by learning about the past. A multitude of careers are available to people who may take a summer course in history, with a wide range of salaries and potential global applications.

The cost of a summer course in history will vary greatly from school to school and from country to country. The price will often include enrollment and registration fees, as well as the cost of books. The best way to determine the expense of a summer course is to contact the university holding the class.

As with other courses in humanities and social sciences, a summer course in history will typically prepare students for a wide range of career prospects. Traditionally, students may choose a career in education, research, information management, or business. These jobs may include journalist, librarian, historic preservationist, or legislative staff worker. The wide field of history presents many opportunities to students.

This course explores what money really is. It expands our everyday perceptions of coins and notes by looking at the ways in which artists, writers and philosophers have revealed the social and political assumptions that money relies upon. The first class will introduce you to money’s contested histories, exploring how histories of barter have been placed against histories of debt and what this means for how money functions in contemporary economies. The second class will introduce you to the ways in which artists and writers have imagined alternative forms of money, exploring examples from counterfeiting to the gift economy. The final class explores what money means in our contemporary moment: analysing the social relations, and problems, that digital money brings. -
