“The cohort experience is about building relationships.”

Paideia helps you to connect different classes and departments in ways you never knew possible. You’ll collaborate with other students, faculty and staff on projects centered on a particular theme. And you’ll have the opportunity to participate in civic engagement and intercultural learning experiences that allow you to apply your new found knowledge beyond the classroom.
Three interconnected courses (a “cluster”) followed by a team-taught interdisciplinary Paideia Seminar, will further help to connect the dots. The seminars provide the opportunity for you and your “cohort” to reflect on your clustered courses and explore how your interdisciplinary experiences relate to your major.

What is a cohort? A cluster? What about "interdisciplinary?" These are all ways of saying that Paideia is a group project with multiple parts. You and students like you will be civically engaged, experience different cultures and thoroughly explore new ideas.
