  • on
    Integrative Studies 5 & 6 are designed as a unified, full-year sequence to be taken in your last full year of studies at Shimer. The readings in this course are arranged chronologically in order to demonstrate their historical relationship to one another. As you read, you will discover a wide range of connections between these texts and those you'll already have studied in other Shimer courses. As a result, you will experience first-hand the richness of the great intellectual traditions upon which the Shimer curriculum is based. Course reading lists may vary slightly from year to year. (Prerequisites: Final-Year status and successful completion of the Basic Studies Comprehensive Examination.)
