This program presents advanced students with the opportunity to pursue independent projects in the humanities in the context of a supportive learning community. Professor Bailey will work closely with each student to develop a project in literary or philosophical studies. First, students will refine their topic and carefully outline its key elements. In fall quarter, we will work to develop together an appropriate reading list and set of written assignments for each student. Students will meet weekly with Prof. Bailey, bringing along their past week’s accomplishments; they will also meet weekly with a small critique group (remotely via Zoom or other technology). Students will complete a rough draft of their final project by early in winter quarter and a final draft by the later weeks of winter quarter.

To successfully participate in this program students will need access to a computer and telephone. Students should expect 30 minutes of direct instruction with the faculty per week.

This program is 16 credits in fall and 12 credits in winter.
