Making Connections Across Academic Disciplines
The Liberal Arts tradition is one that emphasizes breadth of learning and over the centuries the value of broad learning has become increasingly worthwhile. Students will complete five required courses in the key learning traditions, called Ways of Thinking, with the intent of becoming well-rounded learners.
Ways of Thinking
We also believe that this breadth of learning should be grounded and made relevant, and so our students also take courses that are themed. Themes embedded in many of these courses will showcase how seemingly unrelated fields can be connected. Our current themes include Justice, Movement, and Truth. Therefore, while students take a class in each of the five Ways of Thinking, they will also reflect on the connections in their coursework by examining it through the lens of a common theme.
