Be part of the Harlem Clemente Course in the Humanities

Do you love learning but haven’t had the opportunity to take top-level college courses?

Are you interested in philosophy, literature, history, and art?

Do you want to improve your critical thinking, writing, and speaking skills?

We are looking for intellectually curious, highly motivated adult students whose circumstances have made a college education otherwise inaccessible to them.

Students who flourish in the Clemente course want to expand their minds and are dedicated to completing a rigorous course of study.
