AIID 101 - FIRST YEAR TOPICS: LIBERAL STUDIES
This team-taught First Year Seminar will introduce students to the various disciplines and interdisciplinary groups of the School of American and International Studies: American studies, anthropology, history, international studies, literature, philosophy, political science, and world languages. Our disciplinary areas are various, but all are part of a liberal arts curriculum and concern the human experience in its local and global context. This course will prepare students for the kind of academic inquiry expected at college and seeks to foster openness including a willingness to challenge assumptions and to acknowledge error. It strives to introduce students to the complexities of cultural interaction and foster the ability to think critically about such encounters. The goal is transformation, not mere transmission of knowledge--we seek to instill in our students a lifelong love of learning so that they will become active learners who own their education. The specific theme for this course changes from year to year. A significant focus of the course will be to consider how the various disciplines and interdisciplinary groups represented in the School of American and International Studies approach the course theme. This course will meet weekly. During the first half of the class period we will meet as one large group where different ideas, topics, and methodologies from the several disciplines and interdisciplinary groups of AIS will be presented to the whole class. During the second half of the class period we will meet in individual sections to discuss the issues presented to the whole class, often from the particular disciplinary viewpoint or focus of that section.
