Harvard University: “Biological and Biomedical Sciences Graduate School Preparation and Career Options Advising Session”

WHEN: Saturday, 1 October 2016

WHERE:  Boger Hall, Rm 112

TIME: 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

PRESENTED BY:David Van Vactor, PhD, Professor of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Director, Curriculum Fellows Program;  Jason Heustis, PhD, Lecturer, Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Harvard Medical School, Graduate Curriculum, Professional Development and Evaluation Specialist

 Members of the Harvard Medical School community will be visiting to connect with students interested in discussing graduate school applications, graduate training and professional development, and the expanding range of career options for PhDs.

For decades, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education has followed very traditional models of training and career preparation.  These models are now undergoing change to better prepare graduates for a rapidly evolving career landscape.

 We will examine this landscape and open a dialogue with the audience to explore how students can effectively navigate portfolio development, graduate school applications and training.

 Please come and join the conversation!

DANC 111 Section 02
Tu, Th 8:40-10:10AM

This is an introduction to dance as an educational, technical, and creative discipline for students with no previous formal dance training. Classes will introduce the basic components of dance technique–stretching, strengthening, aligning the body, and developing coordination in the execution of rhythmic movement patterns. Through improvisation, composition, and performing, students will develop a solid framework applicable to all forms of dance.
