ERC Educational Philosophy

ERC’s Educational Philosophy is based on the belief that to be educated in our world today means to understand one’s own history and cultural heritage and the history and thought of other major cultural traditions as well.  All ERC undergraduates will include in their academic programs a series of general requirements designed to provide a broad, multi-cultural perspective.  As graduates, they will carry with them a strong international orientation and understanding as well as expertise in their chosen academic disciplines.
