During the Fall and Spring semesters, courses meet one evening a week (usually 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.) for 15 weeks. In the summer, courses meet twice a week for 3 hours (usually 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.) for the 5-week summer term.

All courses are interdisciplinary seminars that address topics not normally included in a department-based graduate program. Their purpose is not to form specialists in a particular field, but to nurture integrative thinking that explores issues across fields. They have no prerequisites and are intentional in engaging contemporary issues. Thus courses are typically grounded in the faculty member’s discipline, but explore the implications and impact of the material for other fields as well.
