Reacting to the Past 16-17

“Reacting to the Past” (RTTP) consists of elaborate games, set in the past, in which students are assigned roles informed by classic texts in the history of ideas. Class sessions are run entirely by students; instructors advise and guide students, and grade their oral and written work. The Curriculum seeks to draw students into the past, promote engagement with big ideas, and improve intellectual and academic skills. See http://reacting.barnard.edu/.

All Reacting-to-the-Past courses are general education Social Science group satisfying.

Note: CAS101 (RTTP) courses only count once towards your degree, so please do not enroll in more than one of these courses.
