Honors Course
This course is intended for freshmen and sophomores in the Honors Program. It will provide students early in their academic career the opportunity to see the ways different disciplines construct knowledge, the research questions that drive that production, and the implications that different kinds of knowledge have on the lives of human beings. The course will be structured around a series of weekly lectures given by campus experts from the various disciplines. Each student will in addition meet in small groups with a section leader who will lead discussions about the weekly lecture, and related readings, and writing exercises. The goal is to help students think deeply about differences and similarities in the way different disciplines construct knowledge and consider creative and fruitful ways of analyzing the kinds of work they might do in the future in their majors.
