Program Description

Please note that this program's teaching takes place at our Vienna campus.

Culture, Politics and Society (CPS) provides an interdisciplinary liberal arts-style curriculum updated for 21st-century challenges. Drawing from the best of the centuries-old liberal arts tradition, CPS shapes young people to be expansive and independent thinkers as future professionals and citizens. CPS invites students to connect their classroom experience to the most vital global contemporary challenges and to develop the critical skills needed to face those challenges. Designed for the generation which has come of age after the digital revolution, CPS offers a broad education for a society flooded with information and disinformation, and with technological transformations which continue to alter how we learn, communicate, relate to one another, and how we engage with the world.

Admission is based on the individual qualities of each student. The program is looking for applicants with a high school education who can demonstrate intellectual curiosity and a proactive and problem-solving orientation. Interest in critical thinking, interdisciplinary perspectives, and global processes will be highly valued, as well as an interest in civic engagement.
