CHID International Programs

The Program in the Comparative History of Ideas is widely recognized and respected for its innovative and transformative international programs. We believe that a “foreign” experience should be a part of every liberal education, not as a means of escape or self-affirmation, but as a path toward critical realistic participation in a world that is both increasingly unified and persistently diverse. Our primary goal is to expose carefully cultivated communities of students and faculty to the complexity of the world through exposure to other cultures and through self-reflection, recognizing that cultural horizons are historically constructed. As with our program on campus, our International Programs are guided by the CHID principles.
