Jackson Institute course offerings are always viewable under “Global Affairs” at Yale’s Online Course Information site.

Jackson Institute courses are taught by faculty throughout Yale’s academic departments, our Senior Fellows, and some visiting faculty. The most up-to-date list of our courses can be found at Yale’s Online Course Information site. All graduate and undergraduate courses at the Jackson Institute are listed as Global Affairs (GLBL).

Most Jackson Institute courses are open to all Yale students. Due to high demand, some of our seminars require prior application. Course applications for these courses are posted on our website when available.
