Building a Humanities-Centered Interdisciplinary Curriculum to Foster Citizen Scholars

A three-year project to implement a new team-taught curriculum integrating humanities with the sciences and professional fields.

The Norwich Humanities Initiative (NHI) is a multi-year project at Norwich University to support a new team-taught curriculum focused on the integration of the humanities with the sciences and professional fields. The NHI was created with funding from a NEH Humanities Connections Planning Grant with the goal to expand opportunities for students to engage in interdisciplinary conversations and activities that demonstrate the impact of the humanities across disciplines. Our project will expand the NHI curriculum through new course development with embedded undergraduate research and experiential learning opportunities and cultivate the development of citizen scholars, or people who bring a critically informed understanding of the world to their life and work through humanistic practices of teamwork, leadership, creativity, and critical thinking. In short, this project will centralize the role of the humanities at Norwich University and prepare our students for life, work, and citizenship.
