CRC First-Year Seminar: Exploring the Foundations of Liberal Education
This course will explore the stereotypes of a “liberal arts education” and its value in today’s world. Through this interdisciplinary program, students will explore the study of basic subjects in a liberal arts curriculum. By attending various events around campus and within Chadbourne Resident College (CRC), students will discover the resources of the University while developing a learning community with others.
We will be asking:
- What are the roots of a “liberal arts education”? What are its stereotypes? How does enacting a “liberal arts education” take shape in our current context?
- What does it mean to be a citizen to both our local and global communities? What responsibilities do we have to those communities?
- What does living in a learning community dedicated to lifelong learning mean to you?
