Phronesis: A Program in Politics and Ethics

Phronesis is the Greek word for prudence or practical wisdom, the quality distinctive of good citizens and political leaders. Drawing on the foundation of the Human Situation, our program's curriculum aims to attract high-achieving undergraduates who wish to probe more deeply into the most profound, enduring questions of public life.

The program is housed in the Honors College as an interdisciplinary minor, established with the cooperation of faculty in Political Science, Philosophy, and Classical Studies.
