A World-Class Education

Whether you are in your first two years exploring our global Common Curriculum or going deep into your chosen major, you will acquire the intellectual habits and critical knowledge that you need to be a leader in any field you choose.

Common Curriculum

“The amazing thing is that the lateral flow of new awareness works not only between colleagues and from students to faculty but across courses, so that whatever is happening in one course can shed an interesting oblique light on another course. Listening to Prof. Sandra Field lecture on Mill, I found myself revising my lecture on William Blake. The connections are countless and continual, and reinforce the sense of the entire common curriculum as a big and complex but collective learning enterprise.”

–Prof Rajeev Patke, Director of Humanities

“My favorite book in the Common Curriculum was the Ramayana. I never knew that there was so much I did not know about my own history and culture.”

–Subhas Nair, Class of 2017

“I think Yusof and Zulaikha was one of the most beautiful stories I read in the Common Curriculum. It gave me a lot of space to think about divine and profane love, and it culminated in one of the most cathartic papers I’ve written yet.”

–Theodore Lai, Class of 2017

Students in the Common Curriculum read the Ramayana, The Odyssey, Aristotle’s Politics, Plato’s Five Dialogues, Shijing: The Book of Songs, The Double Helix, and more!
