Courses

The Cogut Institute offers courses that advance curricular innovation and integrative scholarship at Brown University. 

As part of its Collaborative Humanities Initiative, the Institute fosters team-taught graduate seminars and undergraduate courses where faculty and students jointly explore interdisciplinary topics as well as new research practices. The graduate seminars are open to all students and, for doctoral students, can count toward the Graduate Certificate in Collaborative Humanities.

Several courses hosted by the Institute are directly inspired by new research pursued by Brown University faculty while on fellowship. Courses are also led by Humanities Initiative scholars, visiting faculty, and postdoctoral fellows who frequently hold joint affiliations at the Cogut Institute and in other departments.

In addition, the Center for the Study of the Early Modern World offers an undergraduate concentration, and the Environmental Humanities Initiative maintains a list of relevant courses at Brown.
