President of Northeast Catholic College Visits Chelsea Academy
Dr. George A. Harne visited Chelsea Academy, giving a presentation to Upper School students on selecting the right college or university. Dr. Harne also talked about Northeast Catholic College (NCC) where he has been President for the past six years.
Northeast Catholic College occupies 135 beautiful acres on Mt. Kearsarge in Warner, New Hampshire. The college is a Catholic liberal arts institution that offers students an education rooted in the liberal arts and informed by the Catholic intellectual traditions. NCC offers five majors and a Fine Arts concentration.
Dr. Harne’s area of expertise is the history of music, the subject of his graduate studies at the University of Washington and Princeton University. His scholarly interests include the intersection of musical and philosophical thought in the Middle Ages, twentieth-century music, and music in antiquity. He has published scholarly articles on medieval music and popular essays on Catholic education, most recently “Finding God on the Quad: Benedict XVI’s Vision for Catholic Higher Education” in the National Catholic Register.
