How does media shape our society? How can we use algebra to respond to health crises? How can we use film to raise consciousness about injustice? These are the type of questions students encounter in our integrated studies courses where they are challenged to think by integrating knowledge and skills from a variety of academic disciplines.
As a progressive school we are committed to providing students with active and integrated learning experiences, so they will develop the capacity and the desire to think about and act in response to the our most complex and pressing issues of our times.
We recognize that certain knowledge and skills can be learned in the context of specific academic disciplines. And we know that a deeper understanding of that knowledge and a more refined level of those skills is developed when students are challenged to address work that reflects the integrated nature of the issues of our times.
Complex problems and the intersecting diversity of our connected world call for integrated responses that draw simultaneously from a variety of disciplines. Consequently, we offer a number of integrated studies courses that combine academic disciplines.
