Independent College Programs (ICPR) supports courses that expand and enhance the curricular opportunities at Haverford College. Courses in ICPR do not fit squarely in an existing department or program. Many are interdisciplinary, bringing insights and techniques from one discipline to bear on the questions and interests important to another.
Faculty members from the various academic departments contribute course offerings as do visiting faculty members who bring a unique scholarly expertise and vision to the program offerings. Courses range from introductory to upper level, and cover a broad range of interdisciplinary topics. In recent years ICPR has also served as something of an incubator for new minors and other programs, offering courses in areas such as health studies, visual studies, and environmental studies.
