LAS - Liberal Arts Seminar

LAS 110 Intersections (4)

Intersections is an interdisciplinary seminar that all first-year students take in the fall semester. It is an exploration of the “intersections” at which disciplines, ideas and events converge, connect and collide. All sections share a common topic and many common readings and experiences, while each instructor adds a unique emphasis. The contributions of varied fields – natural sciences, behavioral sciences, fine arts, humanities – are included. Students are introduced to college-level skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, critical thinking and information literacy.
