Sign up's are open!

The Open Master's Program is about to kick-off!  If you are interested in joining this year's class, be sure to sign up by Saturday, September 15th. Get Involved

The first round of the Open Master's program will commence with a pair of 'Open Master's Studio' events on Sunday Sept 30th and Oct 14th. Attendance of at least one of these two Open Master's Studios is required for participants of this year's program.

Please note that you do not need to have your study plan all worked out before signing up. This will be an exploratory process, and we are organizing ample opportunities for us to explore potential courses of study together -- including a Knowledge Commons DC workshop about how to design your own curriculum, this Sunday (optional, open to the public).

Get Inspired

Based on your feedback from the Open House in May, we've drafted an Open Master's Handbook that outlines the process, program, and expectations for this openly peer-reviewed degree. This is a living document that will continue to evolve with the benefit of your feedback.

This week, we've published the first shared plans of some Open Master's participants. Check out these initial iterations of the plans under development by Mike Durante and Alan Webb -- and let them know what you think!

Looking forward to getting this year's program started!
