Kathleen Hanggi (Project Director: September 2019 to present)
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.

Doane University: Emphasis in Integrated Humanities Program

A one-year planning grant to develop an interdisciplinary, humanities-based concentration for biology and psychology majors.

Doane University proposes a $35K Planning Grant to develop a new Emphasis in Integrated Humanities Program (EIHP). Faculty from English, biology, and psychology will develop a pilot program for students majoring in biology or psychology. The EIHP will provide humanities-based skills in creative and critical thinking and communication and tailor the content of a major to the ethical and expressive emphases integral to study in the humanities. Experiential learning is a required component for all undergraduate students at Doane and will be integral to the EIHP. During the grant, the project team will finalize the design, structure, and expected student learning outcomes, including the volume and nature of coursework that will be required and the development of new courses. The EIHP will be approved for implementation in 2019-2020 for a cohort of biology and psychology students and could eventually expand to numerous other disciplines and ideally serve as a model to other institutions.
