About Thinking Matters Courses
"Each [Thinking Matters] course addresses important questions and problems, and demonstrates how thoughtful consideration can address them. Your freedom to choose from among these courses signals that it is your responsibility to structure your liberal education. Stanford invites you to identify your top priority, and you will also have the opportunity to enroll in more than one Thinking Matters course during your freshman year." -- Russell Berman, Director, Thinking Matters Program
