Kaplan Humanities Scholars Program

Students accepted into the competitive Kaplan Humanities Scholars Program participate in an innovative exploration of the humanities via two intensive courses in both fall and winter of the first year. Designed especially for program participants, both the First-Year Seminar and the Humanities in the World courses are team-taught by three award-winning professors drawn from different departments. They include a lecture course and small coordinated seminar each quarter where students refine their critical reading and writing skills; confront the works of great authors and artists; attend special performances and field trips; and examine how artists, thinkers, and ordinary citizens alike have contributed to the central role played by the humanities in our world.
