Basic Program Instructors

Basic Program instructors exemplify the University’s emphasis on interdisciplinary studies. Instructors in the program are generalists who teach across the curriculum, regardless of academic specialty, building connections that add dimension to the individual readings. Trained in the methods of close reading and discussion practiced at the University of Chicago, they foster rigorous yet inclusive discussions in the classroom.
