This exhilarating program encourages small-class dialogue among generations of alumni and offers participants a new perspective on an enduring topic, much like the famed Core Curriculum that all College students experience.
What Are Mini-Core Classes?
The CCAA presents three Mini-Core Class series each academic year, with each taking place across three evenings at a convenient Manhattan location. Mini-Cores offer College alumni the opportunity to revisit the Core and its profound intellectual impact in a seminar-like setting with a distinguished faculty member. Topics relate to the Core Curriculum and explore new texts or ideas with the intent of facilitating rich conversation, debate and discussion that expands one's perspective on the world in relation to enduring topics such as morality, humanity, justice and religion.
Readings are assigned about a month in advance to those who register.
How to Attend
Classes are offered three times each year and are limited to 30 participants in order to inspire close discourse and conversation, reminiscent of the seminar format of the Core.
The class fee is $160 per alumnus/a for each series and $100 per young alumnus/a (within 10 years of graduation).
Registration for each class opens about two months in advance.
