IDLS 2300 - Interdisciplinary Inquiry and Liberal Studies

5 credit hours
Formerly - LBST 2300
Introduces students to interdisciplinary liberal studies, both as an academic discipline and as an increasingly significant development in scholarship. Students will explore the historical, social, and philosophical foundations of liberal and interdisciplinary studies. Topics include leadership, freedom, education, personal identity and responsibility, diversity, and the classic sense of interdisciplinary liberal studies as crucial to intellectual development and good citizenship. Since a portion of the major is self-directed, with requirements drawn from the broad curriculum of the university as a whole, this course will help students construct a cohesive plan for their interdisciplinary liberal studies degree. It also introduces the portfolio, a project that will define the student through the major and into professional development. The portfolio project is a tool for articulating a developing perspective within the interdisciplinary scholarship of the major.
