Implementing a Certificate in Integrated Humanities

A three-year project to implement a new general education certificate program in integrated humanities for psychology and biology majors.

Doane University proposes a $100K Humanities Connections Implementation Grant to implement a new Certificate in Integrated Humanities Program (CIHP). Faculty from the Departments of English, Biology, and Psychology will lead implementation of the CIHP which will be designed for students of any undergraduate major, but particularly in areas of health and social services. The objective of this proposal is to develop three pathways towards certification within the general education core by the end of the grant period – Opioids & Addiction, Fear in the Present Age, and Medicine in America – that will take a multidisciplinary approach to explore a contemporary issue. Each pathway will include three components: (1) two new and innovative eight-week courses called short courses; (2) two revised sections of complementary introductory courses from the undergraduate core curriculum; and (3) a capstone course designed to synthesize the knowledge, values, and skills acquired within each pathway.
