To Analyze S, nificant
Issues For Students
Prof. Max Lerner
Will Also Appea
Six departments in the College of
Literature, Science and the Arts will
co-operate in offering the Graduate
Study Program in Public Policy in
a World of War during the 1941
Sammer session.
The ppose of this program of
study is to present to the summer ses-
sion students a well co-ordinated
course of instruction and reading in
the fundamental elements of domes-
tic and foreign policy, the forces that
have shaped the course of interna-
tional affairs in recent decades, and
the relationship of the United States
to present war and prospective peace.
The program, 'officially designated
Course 351, is intended primarily for
those who are well advanced in their
studies in their own field or depart-
ment and who are prepared to follow
profitably such a collaboration of
scholars in various fields as this
program contemplates.
Students may become members of
the Graduate Study Program by reg-
istering in Course 351 ir. any one of
the departments offering it aftergcon-
sultation with the director of the
course in that department. The.fol-
lowing departments are co-operating
in the program for this summer: ec-
onmics, geography, history, philoso-
phy, political science and sociology.
-Two hours credit will be grnted for
the course, and these and other de-
partments will offer regular courses
related to the subject of the program.
The aim of the program is not to
present a survey of elementary factual
information or to deal exhaustively
with so complex a theme as it has.
ft is rather to deal with problems
of interpretation, with definition and
appraisal of fundamental elements in
American foeign and domestic po-
