From the Director
These are exciting times in the DWC Program. The revitalized program began with the freshman class in Fall 2012, the product of the first significant revision of the DWC program since its inception in the 1970s.
The new DWC seeks to capture the innovative and creative spirit that inspired the original DWC, carrying this inspiration into the coming years. Smaller classes, a central focus on seminars, and exciting new colloquia in the fourth semester are just some of the features that promise to make the new DWC a stimulating experience for students going forward. The new DWC will be taught by a wider range of faculty than ever before. During the 2012-13 academic year, 62 faculty from 11 different academic departments will be participating.
A student in DWC can expect to be challenged, to work hard, and to be inspired. Our faculty is committed to engaging our students in a conversation with the greatest texts in the Western tradition. The DWC experience is intended to be both the core of Providence College curriculum and the beginning of a lifelong love of learning. If you want to be in on the ground floor of something exciting and new, please join us!
