A fast-paced, adventurous interterm class that puts you in conversation with as many as nine professors from nine different disciplines.

A semester-long, community-rich class that explores the intersections of two different course subjects.

A curated and creative narrative of video lectures and assignments based on the IRIS IMMERSION class experience.
