DESCRIPTION: This self-study course allows one-to-one contact with a faculty member who helps focus and direct student inquiry.
TAUGHT: According to need
CONTENT AND TOPICS: Taken on the annual European tour, this course may subtitute for the Senior Seminar. Study topics are negotiated between students and faculty directors, but may include an in-depth examination of such subjects as period studies (i.e. Renaissance sculpture), causal studies (i.e. Moorish influences on Gothic architecture), individual artists (i.e. Haydn and sonata form), or contemporary issues (i.e. conservation vs. restoration).
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: Within an on site travel context, develop more deeply a topic of interest within the Humanities than is possible in standard courses.
REQUIREMENTS: Students and faculty mutually identify specific assignments according to the number of credits desired and specify the timeframe in which they are to be accomplished. These are set forth in a contract signed by students and directors. Assignments usually involve preliminary readings, original research and/or observations, and written documentation of learning accomplished.
PREREQUISITES: Except for extenuating circumstances, students should take Humanities 101, 201, and 202 before registering for this course.
