The Big Questions courses are a special feature of the AUC academic programme. You take a minimum of one in your first year, choosing it from the four offered by AUC.
These courses approach ‘big questions' in science and society from a variety of different and challenging perspectives, and the aim is to stimulate debate from day one of your programme. You are encouraged to reflect on your own position with respect to these ‘big questions', and how you can personally engage with them. They also help to inspire and prepare you for your choice of theme and major.
You can only follow the Big Questions courses in your first year, except for Big Books which you can take as an elective at a later stage if you like.
