Wintersession 2014

wellesley lamp glows in winter dusk

The Wintersession Program brings a unique pedagogical approach to thinking and learning about the liberal arts and global affairs.

During Wintersession, the Albright Fellows attend classes with a series of prominent speakers, including Wellesley faculty, alumnae practitioners, and thought leaders from outside organizations. The Fellows work together in interdisciplinary groups on a variety of pressing international issues, which culminate in presentations to the Institute’s Distinguished Visiting Professors at the end of the Institute.
