Founded 1966

Stevenson College

Self and Society

Stevenson College’s theme, Self and Society, emphasizes the goals of both self-understanding and active participation in one’s community to give students a greater understanding of themselves and their cultures, and to help them think globally.

Academic Requirements

Stevenson’s two-quarter core course, Self and Society, focuses on the relationship between the self and society, and offers students an interdisciplinary introduction to the diverse historical, cultural, and intellectual traditions and texts that provide the basis of modern society. Students meet in seminars two or three times each week to discuss reading and writing assignments. Skills in analytic thinking, writing, and speaking are emphasized.
