HON 101 - Honors Humanities Seminar I


The Honors Seminar is part of the Honors Program's core curriculum. It is an interdisciplinary program which is designed to introduce students to the central concepts of philosophy, literature, history, and religious studies. The purpose of the course is to develop critical skills and qualities of mind necessary to a liberal education. This is done by introducing students to major writings in the humanities and by encouraging them to think about and discuss the ideas addressed in these works. This seminar involves mainly a multi-disciplinary exploration of the period that scholars usually designate as the 'Ancient World.' Students will develop the critical thinking, communication, and writing skills essential for a liberal arts education by engaging with course texts in class discussions, written assignments, and oral presentations.
