Courses in Comprehensive Studies Program (Division 350)

The Comprehensive Studies Program (CSP) is part of the University of Michigan's College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA). Like the Residential College and the Honors Program, CSP offers LSA students a unique educational opportunity: to be a part of a community of scholars who plan, study, learn, share experiences, and work together toward academic excellence. CSP's offerings are intended to realize each student's potential, particularly in subject areas where the student's prior experience may have been limited but in which solid foundations are indispensable for future success. All LSA students are eligible for any CSP course or service. However, students who are CSP "Program Affiliates" receive priority access to all CSP intensive course sections. Jointly with the relevant departments, CSP offers intensive "power" sections of major introductory courses.

For complete descriptions of the following courses see the respective department and course.

In addition, they are designed for students who want to learn argumentation, write logically and persuasively, recognize fallacies and be exposed to a variety of provocative and interesting contemporary topics. These topics (on minority issues and concerns) are analyzed by students in discussions, in in-class and researched essays and occasionally in midterm and take home examinations. Class sessions typically include writing instruction as well as peer group assignments and editing sessions in which drafts and finished papers are critiqued by the entire class. Students will write approximately eight or nine essays for specific audiences and a final research paper.
