Greetings from the University of Jyväskylä! The University of Jyväskylä is pleased to welcome your students to our 11th intensive Summer School in Human Sciences in May-June 2014. The Jyväskylä Summer School in Human Sciences comprises 15 interdisciplinary courses for students interested in e.g. art and culture studies, education, sport and health sciences, psychology, communication, social sciences and philosophy or related fields.
I have attached a Summer School poster to this message. Further information on the Summer School in Human Sciences can also be found below and at www.jyu.fi/study/summerschool.
