This is a half-term course from Sep 28 to Nov 9.

It will consist of 3 hour sessions, each on a different topic, with the intent to introduce you to the topic, pique your interest, expose you to the methodologies and research areas people are working on, and help you think about what types of courses to take in the future.

It is primarily targeted to 1st and 2nd years, but all years are certainly welcome to take the course and/or select certain sessions to attend.
