  • Study Groups

    Whether you're interested in history, literature, philosophy, science, art, music, or drama, the IRP has a study group for you. Members work with the Curriculum Committee to select and develop study group topics that match their interests and expertise. The Curriculum Committee ensures that the content of study groups is varied each semester. Participants in study groups do not receive credit, take tests, or get grades, but they are responsible for sharing the results of their research, keeping up with assigned readings, and contributing to class discussions.

    During both the fall and the spring semesters, IRP students are expected to register for at least two study groups. Hour-and-a-half-long classes meet once a week for 12 weeks and are offered in the morning and afternoon. An abbreviated program is offered in the summer for a small additional fee.
