Being a critical-thinking humanist in the 21st century means taking leadership, being creative, and a willingness to question everything. Our program gives students the opportunity to explore and discover the academic program that is right for them. While students in Studio Art and Music focus on their subjects right from the start, most of our students build a unique program in their first year that gives them the flexibility to make an informed decision about their academic career path that is right for them.
