Up This Week

As for topics you can look forward to this week, we continue with basic introductions of top, in demand courses, such as advertising and what you can expect from it, as well as explore art history careers.

And more, of course! It’s the last week of the summer intercession (at least for those enrolled in the summer semester), so gear up and get ready, because things are about to heat up even more on this blog.
