Liberal Arts Mini-Courses

Learn about history, social movements, gender, race and more through the lens of artistic production. Experts in their field teach academically mature high school students to critically engage with important topics.

These 5-week courses meet weekly for 1.5 hours on Zoom with an expert instructor to guide student learning. Additional resources, assignments and communication are on the learning management system Canvas.

When noted, some mini-courses can be combined to equal a 10-week course to earn 1.0 college credit.
