Humanity in Perspective (HIP) offers a variety of free, for-credit, college-level humanities courses for people who are living on low incomes and/or facing barriers to continuing their education. More than just a class where we learn about the world, HIP is for people who want to participate in a learning community that centers their interests, voices, objectives, creativity, curiosity, and relationships.
There is no tuition or fees to attend HIP, and readings and books are provided. Participants earn transferable undergraduate credits from Bard College upon completion.
