General Description / Special Programs
The program uses small discussion and practice based classes to create a learning environment through which students come to appreciate human diversity, develop a critical perspective on their own society, and examine their role as citizens in a complex, global community. The program fosters intellectual independence through critical thinking and active learning through guided ethnographic research methods, which entail learning to listen carefully and situating cultural details in context in order to understand the perspectives of others. Our students should also graduate with strong oral and written communication skills as well as expertise in textual and online research.
