HON 1515 - Honors First Year Seminar (3)

When Offered: Fall; Spring
GEN ED: First Year Seminar
The Honors First Year Seminar provides students with an introduction to the four goals of a liberal education at Appalachian State University.  Specifically, students will practice (1) thinking critically and creatively and (2) communicating effectively.  In addition, students will be introduced to the learning goals of (3) making local-to-global connections and (4) understanding responsibilities of community membership.  While each Honors First Year Seminar course engages a unique topic examined from multiple perspectives, each course also introduces students to a common set of transferable skills.  As such, the Honors First Year Seminar facilitates student engagement with: fellow students, the university, the community, and the common reading; essential college-level research and information literacy skills; and the habits of rigorous study, intellectual growth, and lifelong learning.  Instructors and content vary.
