QU 201H - (UC) Honors National Community
(3 cr.) This interdisciplinary seminar for sophomores/juniors builds on experiences and learning from QU 101 and focuses on the major themes and concepts that structure life in the cultures of the pluralistic American community. The course challenges students to critically examine what it means to assume a role of informed citizenship and leadership in the United States. The topics can range from social media to spirituality, from bioethics to refugee narratives, depending on the specialty of the instructor. All sections address the common course questions: 1) What is the meaning of community in a national context; 2) What is the effect of individualism on our concept of national community and citizenship; and 3) What is the effect of our pluralistic and multicultural heritage on our concept of national community and citizenship?
