The program encourages students to develop sharpened critical thinking and writing skills, all the while being engaged in a challenging discipline. The program offers a large spectrum of study with topics ranging from the study of the Renaissance and Enlightenment, Twentieth Century events, the Middle East, and Popular Culture just to name a few.
