P&P offers Gateway, Foundations and Electives courses from a wide array of offerings across the disciplines.

Students may request that the Academic Director count a course that does not appear on the list below. Courses taken to satisfy a major or minor may also count among the classes contributing to the Academic Cluster. Of the courses you choose to complete the Cluster program, classes should represent at least three distinct academic disciplines (e.g., history, sociology, philosophy).

This list is subject to change. Not all courses will be available every year or to every student. Some courses may be restricted to majors and/or have prerequisites. If you have questions regarding a particular course, please contact the instructor or sponsoring department.
