Doane University: Emphasis in Integrated Humanities Program

A one-year planning grant to develop an interdisciplinary, humanities-based concentration for biology and psychology majors.

Doane University proposes a $35K Planning Grant to develop a new Emphasis in Integrated Humanities Program (EIHP). Faculty from English, biology, and psychology will develop a pilot program for students majoring in biology or psychology. The EIHP will provide humanities-based skills in creative and critical thinking and communication and tailor the content of a major to the ethical and expressive emphases integral to study in the humanities. Experiential learning is a required component for all undergraduate students at Doane and will be integral to the EIHP. During the grant, the project team will finalize the design, structure, and expected student learning outcomes, including the volume and nature of coursework that will be required and the development of new courses. The EIHP will be approved for implementation in 2019-2020 for a cohort of biology and psychology students and could eventually expand to numerous other disciplines and ideally serve as a model to other institutions.
