Interdisciplinary electives provide students with significant choices, giving students opportunities to develop their passions and explore new areas of potential interest. These classes, meeting twice a week, are driven by inquiry into questions such as:

  • How do we know what we know?
  • Why do we believe what we believe?

Each elective explores and answers a unifying contemporary question across related disciplines. Student work is presented and performed through culminations.
