New Programs

Global Great Books

Global Great Books’ interdisciplinary courses create the unique opportunity to engage with profound questions to understand, in deep and meaningful ways, the perspectives of other people. Questions about happiness, love, hatred and violence are universal, and the ways human beings attempt to navigate them tell us a lot about who they are and what motivates their actions. This program will not only develop your ability to think globally, it will also enrich your sense about how to navigate the complexities of human life, find meaningful solutions to perennial problems and inspire others to do the same.
