The Graduate Institute Offers Opportunity to Travel Abroad

The Graduate Institute (TGI) presents a unique opportunity to travel the world, earn a Masters degree, and engage in a dynamic community dedicated to lifelong learning and self transformation. Its new “Cultural Studies Cohort” in the M.A. in Learning and Thinking provides curious thinkers an educational landscape for broadening their horizons while immersing themselves in the foundations of art and culture. Participants can expect to venture beyond the boundaries of traditional education and explore ideas and experiences at the cutting-edge of contemporary thinking. 

  Colleagues (i.e. students) will study in major U.S. cities such as Los Angeles and Chicago, as well as in some of Europe’s most prominent cultural sites – including Florence, Italy and Vienna, Austria.  Locations that may seem familiar, such as New York City, Philadelphia and rural Vermont, will also be visited and explored with fresh perspectives. These cultural immersions are facilitated by distinguished leaders in the arts, sciences, psychology, medicine, politics, the humanities, and spirituality. 

  The program is undertaken in a learning community of 15 to 20 individuals who will complete their Masters degree together in two years. Classes are held on a flexible schedule geared toward working professionals. 

  The Cultural Studies cohort is an educational experience suitable for teachers, artists, and thinkers in any field. Classes begin in September 2012. The cohort is limited to 20 participants, so interested candidates are encouraged to apply early. Even including these travel experiences, tuition is still more affordable than nearly every in-state graduate degree in education in CT!
