Courses

If you would like to take any of these past courses, please let me know. I can usually teach any seminar as an independent study. Course schedules for the following academic year are typically decided a year in advance, but I take student interest into account in determining which seminars to propose. If you are interested in either an independent study or a course for next year, you can contact me at frierspr@whitman.edu
