Independent College Programs (ICPR) supports courses that expand and enhance the curricular opportunities at Haverford College.
These courses, offered by visiting professors and members of the various departments of the College, are in different ways outside the major programs of the departments. They may be introductory in approach, or they may be interdisciplinary, bringing the insights and techniques of one discipline to bear on the problems important to another. They attempt to introduce students to intellectual experiences that are different from the ones available in our departmental curricula, although in recent years the Independent College Programs (ICPR) has served as something of an incubator for new interests and themes in the curriculum, such as health studies, visual studies, and environmental studies.
The courses have no prerequisites, except where explicitly stated.
Concentrations & Interdisciplinary Minors
Some of the faculty affiliated with ICPR teach courses that count towards various concentrations and interdisciplinary minors. Students should read more about the role these play in the curriculum under the Catalog descriptions for the individual programs in question.
