Is this course going to be offered again?

This course, offered in Summer 2018, will hopefully be offered again but it is not guaranteed that future offerings will be under the same format (full semester) or that it will feature Frank Yiannas.  It may be a short course or a full semester and it may have a different featured instructor. Don't miss the opportunity this summer!
