Active, participatory learning is central to the CSW experience. In each department, students learn through debate, hands-on experiences, experiments in laboratory-like settings, service-based learning, studio work and rehearsals, and off campus research.
Each department strives to give students a solid academic foundation for college – and for life – by encouraging deep-subject matter knowledge beyond rote memorization and helping them develop high-level critical thinking and analytical skills.
