Though many students are in the military, there are also civilian policy-makers, educators and businesspeople taking the three-credit graduate-level courses. Late last week, enrollment was 26 graduate students and another 212 undergraduates for the three classes. Aside from the world economics class, online course offerings include “Problems in American Foreign Policy” taught by political science professor Jon Pevehouse, and “Nuclear Weapons in World Politics” taught by Andrew Kydd, an associate professor of political science. Last fall Kydd’s lectures were recorded. He shortened some of the semester-long course to fit in the eight-week timeline, taped the short video introductions and paired his PowerPoint slides with the audio. Kydd figured some of his students wouldn’t have access to libraries, bookstores or Amazon, so all of the readings can be downloaded from the course website.
