Additional Program Details

Triple-bottom-line thinking is an approach we’ve been perfecting for over 165 years. Antioch’s first president, Horace Mann, was a nationally known abolitionist and social reformer. Antioch was an early adopter of progressive and innovative education – a philosophy that resonates today.

Students engage and interact with each other throughout the courses. Classmates are encouraged to get to know one another, share personal experiences, and network.
