Introductory Humanities Seminar
0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Tutorial/Seminar: 3

Each seminar will focus on a complex and topical question which can be explored fruitfully from multiple perspectives. The perspectives will be representative of several Humanities disciplines, and in particular History, Literature, and Philosophy. Students will work collectively and individually to understand both the subject at hand and the representative perspectives. There are two purposes in approaching a subject from multiple perspectives: (1) to help students appreciate both the complexity of the problems underlying the focal question; and (2) to appreciate the value of what scholars call multi-disciplinary research.
