HNRS 2011.001: EC Scholars Freshmen SeminarDr. Katherine Ford, Associate Professor of
Hispanic Studies, Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences
Seminar Description: What are the humanities and
why do we have to study them? This course is meant
as an exploration of the humanities and their value to us as human beings. As
such, we will explore various definitions of the humanities and approach
different themes from the perspectives of the humanities. The humanities
undoubtedly prepare us to think, write, speak and learn—all qualities that we
will need throughout our lives and careers no matter what we choose to do.
