Hudson High School Visits The C. G. Jung Institute & The Jung Center
The New Dimensions class of the Hudson High School in Ohio came to visit the Institute and the Jung Center Tuesday, March 12 as part of a week-long immersion in a multicultural experience of New York - visiting museums, shadowing students in New York City public schools, attending Broadway productions, and meeting New Dimensions alumni who live and work in New York City.
Dating back to 1970, New Dimensions is a selective team-taught humanities class offered to approximately thirty students each year at Hudson High School. Those accepted demonstrate intellectual curiosity, dedication to learning and exploring , and resilience to intellectual challenges. The typical class operates as a seminar, focusing on critical analysis and advanced thinking skills. Upon graduation, the New Dimensions graduate can discuss psychoanalytic theory, quote Hamlet, explain Plato's Allegory of the Cave, analyze cultural value systems and archetypes, deconstruct Lord of the Flies, and understand the nuances of complex, controversial, and current social issues. In addition, each New Dimensions student completes a year-long research paper on a contentious issue of their choice.
