Program Overview

Program Description:
Students spend half their time on core courses, and divide the rest of their time between electives and a year-long individual project after which the program is named. The individual project, arranged according to individual background and plans for the future, allows the student to pursue an old interest further, or acquaint him or her-self seriously with a new territory. The work is supervised by 1-2 faculty members with relevant expertise and culminates with a 25-page essay, as well as an oral presentation of the project to the rest of the school. The PY core course is devoted to fundamental questions about the ideals that guide the human pursuit of knowledge and understanding. In 2009-10 f.e. the topic was The Idea and Ideal of Objectivity. Normally PY students have 3-5 years of relevant academic experience when they join the programme. Many PY students plan to continue with graduate studies, and in the past four years ECLA has helped place students in some of the best graduate schools, including programs at Oxford University, New York University, Columbia University and Boston University.
