Because your sophomore year represents a transition from being new to college to beginning to plan for your future, LSA offers courses designed to showcase how the liberal arts really work.
Among these, you'll find small seminars, classes that span multiple disciplinary perspectives, hands-on experiential learning courses, and many more innovative options!
As an example of the types of classes LSA is offering, take a look at the popular "Twenty Two Ways" class, which features guest lectures from 22 different professors examining a topic from 22 points of view. You'll learn how to really dissect an idea and apply a range of skills in doing so. For Fall 2013, the topic is "22 Ways of Going Medieval," where you can learn to think broadly about the medieval through a variety of different disciplines, such as medieval art, architecture, literature, law, religion, science, philosophy, history and political thought. The course will expose students to a variety of different disciplines and fields.
The University talked to some students who took the class in Fall 2011 (when the topic was "food") and assembled the following video:
