Second Semester Enrichment Course Offerings:
Seminar Preparation (New!)
When & Where: Mondays and Fridays in Room 410
Description: The Seminar Preparation enrichment course is intended to help students improve and deepen their participation in seminars in Humane Letters courses and encourage them to continue to explore the curriculum through Classics to Keep. The students will continue their exploration of major classics by looking back at texts that they have encountered in the curriculum with new perspectives, accompanied by new ways of discussing and approaching these familiar masterpieces. Students will learn to compare and contrast, to read closely, and to re-evaluate these classics. Students will be encouraged to continue their education both through continual exploration but also through the experience of re-visiting texts. Students will also deepen their ability to annotate and note take on readings with the aim that they will be able to lead their own seminar at the end of the semester. The overall goal of this course is to cultivate both the confidence of students in seminar and to deepen their appreciation of the skills and texts explored in the course.

Students will learn to communicate on various daily topics such as greetings, family, location, food, daily activities, and neighborhood. Korean is an increasingly important language on the world stage because of South Korea’s powerful economy and growing presence in Asian art culture. A significant population of Korean in Brazil, Canada, Japan, Russia, and the former USSR, as well as the United States, also count Korean as their heritage language, and some 75 million people worldwide speak Korean. Learning Korean enriches students to prepare for their future because knowing another language and appreciating other cultures are skills that last a lifetime.
