	Not sure how much help this will be, but the only university
course I know  that is offered in that field is at the University of
Toronto, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Your friend (it's always a "friend",
isn't it?) can get some info by scanning the calendar, and maybe writing
to the relevant department(s) to see if they know of a closer program.
	Of course, your friend is welcome to come to's about
minus 45 C right now, and we can use all the body heat possible over here!

Cheers, Robb
