Focal point is required four-course, two-year sequence in the humanities designed to be relevant to interests and needs of society and enable students to develop aesthetic and critical judgements concerning the humanities. Because course employs interdisciplinary, team-teaching approach to humanistic social sciences, it is necessary that faculty broaden their humanities background and be provided with opportunity for research and further study. Present project to enable faculty to conduct month-long summer curriculum workshop to improve teaching techniques, design special classroom materials and thoroughly plan and coordinate humanities sequence. Prior to workshop, students and faculty will evaluate quality of present program. Funds for salaries, materials, travel, secretarial assistance, consultants, office supplies.
