The Interdisciplinary Concentrations Program at MBS

Pathways to Discover Passions

 

The Interdisciplinary Concentrations Program (ICP) offers pathways for students eager to explore an aspect of the world that transcends single classes, disciplines, and extracurricular pursuits.

Students may apply for any one of three Concentration pathways at the end of their Freshman years: “Arts and Innovation,” “Global Citizenship,” and “Ethics, Leadership, Justice.” Working weekly with a concentration advisor and cohort of peers, students will progress through Sophomore, Junior, and Senior year committing to community service opportunities, electives, discussions, retreats, and independent projects that further their journey down a concentration pathway into the complexities of our twenty-first century world.
