Living ethically is more than a slogan. It requires us to focus on foundational questions about how we should live—both as individuals and in our communities. We encourage students to explore what it means to live ethically in the context of real-world issues. If you want to make a difference, mastering the principles of critical thinking and reasoning is a great place to start. In the College, you’ll learn to build a better argument to support your cause. Whether you are here to study history, change the course of it, or both, we’ll help empower and encourage you to succeed.

I was fascinated with the power of journalism to essentially right a wrong and the way that storytelling could create this change in a way that sometimes political institutions can’t.Asma Khalid (B.A. ’06, Journalism, Political Science)
