Liberal Arts Studies (LIBA)

LIBA 101. Liberal Arts Seminar. 3 Hours.

Emphasizes the development of four key capacities that are essential for students transitioning to college: growth mindset; identity and perspective; critical reasoning; and academic reading and writing. Topics of sections vary by instructor, but each includes exploration in the development of intelligence; the ways that values and place shape perspective; the discernment of evidence and the arrival at logical conclusions; and college-level reading and writing within disciplinary-specific genres. This small-group seminar is required of all entering first-year students.
