Welcome

Comparative History of Ideas is an interdisciplinary program that draws on a wide variety of disciplines within the College of Arts and Sciences to examine the interplay of ideas and their cultural, historical, and political contexts. We encourage our students to engage thoughtfully in critical intellectual inquiry and reflection. We also emphasize the significance of being actively engaged in the world, of understanding the social, cultural, and political forces that shape our lives and identities, and our role in transforming our world.
