Fields of drama, poetry and the novel will provide basic texts with supplementary writings in the social sciences (psychology, economics, history, sociology and anthropology). Subject matter of the course will produce laboratory situation in which administrators, faculty and students can assess attitudinal change produced by humanistic teaching.
