GSR 220H Honors Methods of Multiple Disciplines with City-as-Text

This is an Integrated Learning Course which emphasizes the fourth Undergraduate Learning Outcome: Knowledge and Inquiry. Thus, this course focuses on enabling students to apply knowledge, modes of inquiry, and technological competence from a variety of disciplines in order to understand human experience and the natural world. The Honors version of this course also emphasizes more sophisticated readings, research tools, questions, evidence, and analysis typical of upper level courses. This course will be taught by one or more faculty members and will focus on a central topic while drawing on material from more than one discipline; topics will vary from section to section and semester to semester. Students will engage in experiential learning activities related to a City-as-Text feature, which may include service learning opportunities, to reinforce and enhance the academic content of the course.
