Practitioner-Taught Course Application Form

Thanks for your interest in the Practitioner-Taught Courses! You may apply for more than one course. Complete a separate form for each, and indicate your 1st, 2nd, etc. choice.

The initial deadline was February 19, 2018, but we are still accepting applications. There are openings in Science Journalism and Brand Culture Building, and short wait lists for Private Equity, Leadership Development and Filmmaking, The Creative Process.

Please carefully review the information on the Practitioner-Taught Courses webpage. You will find details about the individual courses, the slideshow from the Information Sessions, links to information about the practitioners, and more.

Preference will be given to students who have not taken a Practitioner-Taught Course in the past. There are no prerequisites for these courses, and we will aim for an approximate balance of class years and other experiences in each course. The only requirement is enthusiasm for the topic and willingness to dig deep and work with passion.

Students who have taken Professor Mountcastle’s Science Communication or FYS Communicating Science courses may not register for the Science Journalism PTC, and vice versa.

If you have questions about the application process, please feel free to contact Marianne Cowan ’92 (mcowan@bates.edu).
