CONSIDER PREPARATORY WORKSHOPS/PLAN YOUR ELECTIVES
Online Math Refresher and Classroom Review Module
In June, Wagner will send you information about an online math refresher. We encourage you to review these materials to determine how much review you may need to do before classes begin. In addition to the online refresher, Wagner also offers a preparatory in-class workshop before the start of the semester. Math Review (NONCR-GP 906) is a non-credit review module. This module will offer you the opportunity to ask questions in a classroom setting and will contextualize the quantitative review by giving examples of how the material will appear in your core courses. Regardless of the specialization you choose, three of the Core courses you will be required to take will involve quantitative skills. You are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the refresher materials and preparatory workshop.
Professional Writing Module
If you feel you need to brush up on your writing skills, consider taking the non-credit Professional Writing (NONCR-GP 907) module which meets during the semester. More information is available here. The tuition for the module is $175.
If you have never taken an American Government course or need to brush up on your knowledge of the basic design and functions of the governmental units in the United States prior to taking Introduction to Public Policy (CORE-GP 1022), consider taking the non-credit Introduction to Governance (NONCR-GP 989) module. Students who are new to the U.S. Government system are strongly encouraged to take the module. The tuition for the module is $175.
These optional workshops provide tips on a variety of useful topics, such as memo writing, library research methods, presentation skills and composing your career.
