Arguing the Humanities: A Course for STEM Students

The integration of humanities texts and methods of inquiry into a required writing course for STEM students, followed by faculty training, implementation of the course, and the creation of a digital archive.

Arguing the Humanities is a course redesign project that seeks to integrate substantial humanities content and texts into a required developmental course for STEM students that focuses on close reading and analytical writing. The project goal is to give STEM students broader exposure to significant works of the human intellect and imagination, and to develop the habits of mind required to analyze these works and write persuasively from and about them.
