Literature, Philosophy, & Culture session (LPC) is designed for students with an interest in the expression and interpretation of creativity and culturally significant texts. Participants study fiction, philosophy, poetry, theater, film, music, visual arts, dance, and other creative arts.

Instructional staff will frame texts and media comparatively and internationally, enabling students to think more fluently about their places in the world and cultivate the skills to better articulate themselves in speaking and writing. Students will be presented with interdisciplinary and international perspectives and will consider the function of the arts and humanities when inspiring solutions to social problems and dilemmas.

Is LPC a Good Fit for Me?
