BA in Culture, Politics, and Society

Culture, Politics, and Society provides an interdisciplinary Liberal Arts curriculum updated for 21st century challenges. The curriculum is based on the reality that in order to be an independent thinker in our time, and to be ready for work after graduation, students need to be equipped with skills that go beyond knowing how to read and compose written texts.
CPS is designed for the generation which has come of age after the digital revolution, living in a society flooded with information, disinformation and with technological transformations which continue to change how we learn, communicate, and relate to one another.
Students in CPS acquire skills for interpreting a wide variety of information, ranging from classical texts to statistical data, to understanding the algorithms behind common social media graphics. They are trained in the vital skills necessary for producing knowledge and communicating it in multi-media forms outside the classroom. They are also taught a rich and comprehensive curriculum in the social sciences and humanities, opening many paths towards a fourth-year specialization and completion of a BA major.
