Program Overview

Program Description:
Students divide their time equally between core courses and electives, and may study languages for extra credit if time permits. In 2009-10 the core courses are dedicated to Greek Thought and Literature on Education, Art and Politics in the Florentine Renaissance, and The Ownership Society: Property in Modernity. Most AY students have already studied for 1-3 years elsewhere and typically come to ECLA to engage, or reengage, their disciplinary training with a broader context of moral, political, epistemological and aesthetic concerns. Some students enroll in the AY Programme immediately after high school, often inspired by a serious interest in politics, ethics, literature or art - and a wish to find an alternative to what they consider premature specialization.
