Students may enroll for either three or six credits; if you enroll for three credits and intend to take the on-campus course, sign up for GVPT 399A; you may also take the course as an online, three credit course.  If you do that sign up for GVPT 388A.  If you choose to take the course for six credits sign up for both 399A and 388A.  For those taking the course for six credits, 388A covers the second three weeks of the first summer session.  You do an independent project on your own that builds from the first three-week 399A session.  You work with your discussion leader on a paper topic and that paper will be due at the end of the first summer session.  You do not have to be on campus to do GVPT 388A.   For those of you taking the online 388A ONLY you have the entire first summer session, through July11, to complete the above list of films.
