Humanities in Action Honors Program

Planning for a five-course interdisciplinary Honors Program curriculum, “Humanities in Action.”

Humanities in Action (HIA) is a five-course honors curriculum which places the skills and values cultivated by the humanities at the center of student learning. We are seeking funding to develop and integrate two key features of HIA: interdisciplinary team-taught courses and a culminating experiential learning component. The interdisciplinary courses examine scientific, social scientific, and mathematical knowledge and reasoning in specific social and cultural contexts to illustrate how these factors complicate the acquisition and application of “objective” results. Armed with this knowledge and the tools and skills of different disciplines, students will design and operationalize experiential learning projects for the Humanities in Action capstone. During the planning year, a diverse team of faculty and staff will design team-taught interdisciplinary courses, develop experiential learning and leadership modules, and design a community-engagement capstone.
