Prerequisite: Students must be members of the Honors College
This course introduces first-year students to the potential for gaining a truly rich undergraduate education at the University of Utah. The course is based 50% on students' participation in seminar-style discussions about the meaning purpose and benefits of pursuing an undergraduate education anchored on the liberal arts and sciences - whatever a student's major may be. The other 50% of class time is devoted to ten of the University's most distinguished scholars and teachers, representing widely different academic and professional fields - each spending two hours in their field at their laboratory, clinic or studio. Student's are required to prepare for all class sessions by mastering the assigned readings from the professor and scholars or teachers and write systematically in a reflective journal. Students are encouraged to take initiative in helping to shape this seminar experience.
