How Seminars Work

  1. In the winter prior to a school year, the faculty team assesses the strengths and needs of students.
  2. Faculty meet with students to talk about their collective interests and passions.
  3. Faculty and students co-design a year of seminars on a wide range of topics that develop core skills and knowledge while simultaneously appealing to students’ collective interests.

Some courses that would make up a given year of seminars might include topics such as:

  • Hamliton: A History and A Performance
  • The Science of Good Music
  • The Sociology of Modern Media and Technology
  • App Design Using Python
  • Forensic Science
  • A World History of Terrorism and Counterterrorism
  • The Financially Prepared Professional
  • Digital Photography
  • The Philosophy and Math of Paradox and Infinity
  • The History and Science of Film Production
  • Writing for the Stage and Screen
  • Understanding Big Data
  • Becoming an Artist/Entrepreneur
  • Mathematics for Machine Learning: Multivariable Calculus
  • Journalism in an Era of Fake News
