LAS 1110 - The Natural Environment - Understanding Our Place in the Natural World


For this first seminar in the Liberal Arts & Sciences, students will engage in the kind of open‐ended thinking that defines the liberal arts and sciences, thereby gaining a foundation for the kind of critical and reflective skills they will need as they continue their course of study in the LAS Core Curriculum and their majors. Using a multidisciplinary approach, seminars will explore the sciences, literature, art, and philosophies of nature in order to better understand our place in the Natural world.

Within the framework of a developmental pedagogy, writing will be intensive, but the emphasis will be formative. Students will be assessed with a set of criteria that are developmental in nature. LAS 1 is designated as a writing‐intensive General Education seminar. Credits: 4
