Why Take the Workshops? Anchor

Why Take the Workshops?

The McCourt School’s Enhance and Advance summer workshop series enables participants to gain unique insight into specific aspects of their coursework and further build their skills. These virtual courses give students a chance to learn from McCourt and The Beeck Center for Social Innovation & Impact professors and practitioners in the field and examine how class work can be applied outside of the classroom. Courses begin on June 1, 2021.
