General Course Information
For Humanities I and II, students will be exposed to two professors from two different disciplines, focusing on a theme that explores great works. The team-taught format, which we consider vital to the program, pairs a faculty member from Political Science, Philosophy, or History with a faculty member from either English or Modern Languages.
Designed to be as flexible as possible, these courses allow different instructors to choose their own themes and emphases within the general parameters of engaging with significant "great books" or humanities texts. The courses are organized chronologically, from Classical to early modern and from Enlightenment to the present. They are also based on graduate Humanities courses.
Several instructors who formerly taught in the graduate Humanities program have been teaching the Honors courses. Instructors who have taught the Honors Humanities offerings include Elizabeth Skerpan-Wheeler (English) with Ken Ward (Political Science), Lucy Harney (Spanish) with Cecilia Castillo (Political Science), Elizabeth Makowski (History) with Susan Morrison (English), Kenneth Grasso (Political Science) with Carole Martin (French), Robert Tally (English) with Rebecca Raphael (Philosophy), and Ken Ward (Political Science) with Blake Locklin (Spanish).
