Studium Generale


Broadening Horizons

Studium Generale aims to encourage students and staff to think more critically, more clearly. About science, society and themselves.

It seeks to prompt discussion of these subjects and, in so doing, to take the participants beyond the limits of their own disciplines, let them discover new perspectives, and encourage them to examine the ideas they hold.
