Students learn to integrate information from interdisciplinary perspectives and enhance their creativity, insightfulness, and unconventional but considered thinking. They improve their higher-order cognitive skills, capacity for independent thinking, and autonomous action. They employ meta-cognition in the classroom and in life circumstances, make connections among seeming dissimilarities; appreciate and enjoy questions, ambiguity, and paradox. Students interrogate diverse world views and become cognizant of ethical dimensions of issues and dilemmas.
Students meet with their faculty advisor to assess their progress in meeting their program goals as part of a formative evaluation process.
