Freshman Studies is like no other program of its kind. Over two terms, you'll be part of a powerful intellectual tradition as you grapple with disparate works united by a common theme. Ancient plays, current graphic novels, medieval paintings and modern jazz albums can all be part of a curriculum designed to challenge and excite while preparing you to thrive at Lawrence and beyond.
Learn by doing, exploring, debating, researching, creating, practicing, performing. Whether you are taking the stage to premiere your first jazz composition or sampling ice-age lake sediments with a portable drill rig, Engaged Learning is what characterizes a Lawrence education and distinguishes Lawrentians. Throughout your time at Lawrence, you'll actively engage in challenging and meaningful learning experiences with faculty and with one another.
The Chandler Senior Experience
The Chandler Senior Experience can only be found at Lawrence. The capstone of your time at Lawrence, you design an experience that brings together the strands of your education and weaves them into a whole, whether you tackle an in-depth research project examining the efficacy of anti-malarial drugs or U.S. tax policy, compose a jazz album infused with global folk traditions or stage an interpretation of Henrik Ibsen's classic play Peer Gynt set in the mountains of Appalachia.
