Who We're Looking For

Summary

The Graduate Institute attracts students of varied ages, backgrounds, and experiences. Some students enroll shortly after graduating from college, often seeking a foundation in classic texts that they missed in more conventional undergraduate programs. Other students are actively engaged in careers; some already hold graduate degrees. Still other students turn to the Graduate Institute in retirement or in a hiatus from their careers, seizing the opportunity to use their leisure for serious reflection. Although the Graduate Institute offers considerable professional gain to students, particularly present or prospective teachers, students are also generally motivated by the intrinsic rewards of reading great books and discussing them with others who care deeply about the issues they raise.
