AHA Pre-Orientation, August 16-22, 2019

Are you the kind of person who likes to think about life, death, perception, reality, morality, justice, time, history, and dinosaurs? Do you stay up late analyzing films frame by frame? Are you secretly writing a novel about a band of steampunk zombies? Are you the person who can explain, musically, why everyone on Earth should delete the Coldplay tracks from their music library?

If so, you might be right for Linfield’s Arts and Humanities in Action Program.

In the dynamic AHA pre-orientation program, you and fellow students will come together with Linfield faculty to explore and create. You will learn about major fields of arts and humanities, understand what questions they ask and may answer, and how you connect with these fields and the extraordinary number of jobs they prepare you for. By the end of the residency, you will have explored a personal area of interest culminating in an interpretive project.

Why should you apply?

The AHA lab will give you an early start exploring your educational opportunities early at Linfield. You will:

  • Be mentored by Arts and Humanities faculty
  • Meet and engage with other students
  • Participate in scholarly and creative projects
  • Learn how majoring in Arts and Humanities can lead to careers
  • Become part of a creative learning community
  • Learn about internships in the Arts and Humanities


Any student who has been accepted to and is planning to attend Linfield College is eligible to apply. Application to the AHA program is competitive; a limited number of spaces are available in order to ensure a low student-to-faculty ratio. We are looking for students who demonstrate a passion for the Arts and Humanities and who desire to engage in experiences that could lead to opportunities in a variety of fields. Your application responses will be the indicators of your interest.
