There will be three elective courses: Economics, Government and Law, which will meet five times throughout the week. These will be traditional lecture courses, not unlike those that are conducted at college.
The Government Course deals with a number of questions of current interest as well as political historical value. Matthew Parent is a PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Connecticut, studying military technology and international relations. He holds an MA in Political Science from UConn (2015), a Graduate Certificate in Human Rights from UConn (2015), an MA in World Politics from the Catholic University of America (2012), and a BA in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst; 2010). He is published in the Journal of Intelligence and National Security, and online at War on the Rocks. Matt has also taught coursework on international relations, security studies, and international organizations at UConn and Clark University.
The Economics Course will have different lecturers and topics. James Myatt is economic consultant, supporting expert testimony in complex antitrust litigation and mergers. He received his Ph. D. in Economics from Northwestern University in 2018. He also holds an M.A. in Economics from Northwestern and a B.S. from New York University in Economics and Mathematics.

The Law Course deals with general topics in legal ethics and the fields of criminal, constitutional, tort and contract law. The Law Course is taught by Hon. Dennis J. Curran, (Ret.). Judge Curran is a graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law, the University of Pennsylvania, and Boston Latin School. On top of being an Adjunct Professor at Roger Williams University School of Law, he has received many honors as a jurist, including the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Chief Justice Edward F.
