Higher Education in the US

Higher Education in the US
You got into Middlebury College, but how and why are you here? What will college do to and for you? And where are your peers? We will explore the answers to these questions by examining the determinants of high academic achievement, the admissions process to liberal arts colleges, the effects of college on students with different characteristics, and the range of institutions of higher education (including community colleges, military schools, religious colleges, and single-sex schools). In this seminar we will draw on a broad variety of readings, from biography, history, journalism, and sociological studies. 3 hrs. sem.
