In addition to a set of required foundational and breadth courses, you will choose and explore a thematic course concentration — a Gateway — that has a broad intellectual and cross-disciplinary interest. The Gateway is designed to introduce you to interdisciplinary problem-solving challenges regarding some of the major issues of our times.

  • You can choose your courses voluntarily
  • You must choose a different discipline/prefix for each course
  • You must successfully complete all required Foundation courses and three Breadth and Proficiency courses before taking your Gateway courses

The 2019-2020 Gateway Theme is Global Learning and Social Responsibility

Courses in the Gateway will help you understand the complexity of the issues we see in the news every day. The courses you take will help you see the need for all of us to foster every individual's ability to experience equality and justice, as well as to appreciate the wide and varied kinds of social and cultural diversity at home and abroad.
