The holding of cash, stocks, bonds, and other financial assets is an act of faith: faith that the assets will hold their value into the future when they can be converted into consumption.  Throughout history, the ephemeral nature of value has been forgotten during periods of low inflation and financial stability.  Yet repeatedly, these periods have ended abruptly.  Asset values dissolve instantaneously like a car wreck, or slowly but inexorably like a chronic disease.  This does not affect only “Wall Street.”  It affects “Main Street” as well.

What is “work”? How do we define it, and how does it define us? Who gets to decide what work means? And how can we make the most of this central human activity that demands so much time and attention? By means of intensive personal exploration and historical and sociological study, students in this program will forge a broader and deeper understanding of the phenomenon of work.

Biology is the study of life on Earth. This program is intended to help students fulfill General Biology requirements necessary for advanced work in environmental studies and the natural sciences. Throughout the quarter, we will emphasize two overarching principles – evolution and the ability to recognize biological concepts around you. Evolution is the framework that links the biological sciences across scales: from individual cells, to multi-cellular organisms, up to populations and communities of interacting organisms within ecosystems.
