Integration of the Honors Core Curriculum

Allows students completing the Interdisciplinary Honors Program to reflect on and present to peers the intersection between their Interdisciplinary Honors core courses and experiential learning projects. For University Honors Program students only. Offered: AWSp.

Class description

In this course, students will complete the Interdisciplinary or College Honors Program and reflect on and present to peers the intersection between their Interdisciplinary Honors Core courses and experiential learning process. The culmination of this course, and of the student's Honors Program curriculum, is represented in the final portfolio presentations to the larger Honors community.

Using UW Google applications and other platforms, students will be asked to creatively reflect on the connections between and across their UW courses and disciplines, as well as how in-classroom knowledge has (or has not) bridged the gap between academia and experiences outside of the classroom.
