An extensive upper-class curriculum builds on the first-year foundation in a way that is focused yet expansive. Traditional coursework is combined with practical skills, courses, and clinics. There are numerous opportunities to study closely in small groups with faculty, including seminars, research tutorials, and an innovative “Reading in Ethics” series in which up to eight students read and study selected books with a faculty member in a year-long discussion group. The majority of all second- and third-year classes enroll fewer than 25 students.
