University Studies Program

Intellectual Community (I)

 

Definition:

The Intellectual Community provides the skills and philosophy necessary for success as a student and as a life-long learner.

 

Rationale:

The Intellectual Community will normally be academic, content-based courses which will be individually tailored to each discipline offering the course. Students will develop life-long learning skills by producing, rather than merely receiving, information; evaluating and cultivating learning styles and study strategies; and synthesizing information from a variety of sources. The orientation topics currently in the F1 should be covered during a special “welcome week” or other orientation format and thereby removed from the course.

 

Recommendation:

Intellectual community courses may be approved for 1-3 credit hours to accommodate undeclared or transfer students or specific needs of programs and departments. All courses approved in this category must meet the criteria, regardless of credit hours.
