Cosmopolitanism, Social Science Seminar

This Social Science Seminar is a trimester-long course introducing juniors and seniors to the cosmopolitan concept of being a citizen of the world. The seminar asks students to update the Western philosophy of cosmopolitanism to address today’s globalized world. In addition to writing three short papers, students do a group project about the school’s service-learning program and a term-long project on cosmopolitan friendship.

United States, Beginnings to 1900 (History 10)

The course United States, Beginnings to 1900 challenges students to examine problems in early American and nineteenth-century American history. Unit themes help students organize facts rather than simply memorize them randomly. The course is discussion-based with the goal of supporting students to develop and defend their own points of view orally and in writing. This is a year with lots of writing. Essays weigh 50 percent during the fall and winter terms and 60 percent during the spring term.
