Theme Programs

Theme Programs are special residential communities co-sponsored by an academic department and the Residential Programs. The Theme Program experience allows students to enjoy the opportunities of a large university while benefiting from being part of a smaller and closer-knit residential community of students who share a common academic interest.

Theme Program residents must enroll in a weekly for-credit seminar and participate in community service and leadership activities. Residents are also offered a variety of other opportunities that integrate living and learning in the residential environment, including field trips, retreats, workshops, faculty dinners, study groups and daily living with roommates and neighbors who share the same interest.
