• Common Curriculum

    At the heart of every student’s education is a program of coursework known as the Common Curriculum. Centered on the most fundamental questions in the liberal arts and science, it will offer students some understanding of the natural world, human psyche and social life, literature, the arts and history, and philosophical and mathematical thought.

  • Majors

    Each major provides systematic training in a specific academic discipline or interdisciplinary area, and is designed to give students ample scope and flexibility to explore their interest in a chosen area of knowledge, while providing direction and depth to their studies.
