To achieve these aims, students are trained in the rational analysis of pertinent phases of human experiences.
The department has hosted a webinar featuring Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman, discussing his book, “Arguing with Zombies”. If you weren’t able to attend, you can still view the discussion here:
