Academics

In addition to our Global Public Health and the Common Good Minor, the Schiller Institute is developing a range of academic programs and courses. These include a community-engaged, project-based learning course that will prepare students to work collabortively within and for communities while also developing marketable skills, including communication, project management, and leadership. The Schiller  team is leading efforts to develop a data science graduate degree and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program. Schiller Core Faculty, Professor Yi Ming and Professor Hanqin Tian will develop courses, new majors, and cutting-edge graduate programs.
