Liberal Studies (LIBS) Courses

LIBS4900 Liberal Studies Capstone: The Great Conversation

This seminar draws on coursework from the Liberal Studies major and synthesizes it in the form of a research-based project on an original topic. Projects focus on substantive issues that explore the seminal works of Western civilization and the questions that they raise: Where did we come from? What does it mean to be free? What is justice? What is truth? What does it mean to be virtuous? Students explore substantive areas of scholarship and creative works throughout history encompassing philosophy, politics, science, religion, literature, film, music and the arts. Through problem-based learning, students develop the characteristics of self-reliant thinkers and learners and demonstrate their capacity to cultivate a rich intellectual experience.
