Writing for Academic Success

The purpose of this course is to help students become stronger writers. To the end of sculpting effective essays, the course will teach students the principles of good reading; essay structure; editing and revision; and the effective use of rhetoric. The course proceeds upon the premise that clear writing is rooted in sound grammar, and that even analysis cannot properly proceed without this basis. For this reason, the course will necessarily include instruction in grammar.

Note: Students are encouraged to take this course in their first year to maximize the opportunity to increase success in later courses. However, it may be taken as an elective requirement at any time.


INTS 110.3 — 1/2(2L-1S)
The Art and Science of Almost Everything

This team-taught, foundational course highlights ways of knowing across multiple disciplines in the fine arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. It asks students to think about how a particular theme or subject is considered, theorized, and addressed by and across various academic disciplines in the College of Arts and Science. The course helps students to learn about a wide variety of perspectives in understanding the world; identify differences between disciplines; understand that disciplines are tools for exploration; and build community across departments and disciplinary approaches. At least one unit of the course focuses on Indigenous perspectives, and the course is writing intensive.

Restriction(s):INTS 110.3 is intended as a first-year Arts & Science course. In order to register, students must be registered in the College of Arts & Science and have successfully completed no more than 30 university credit units.

Design and Society

We live in a designed world. From the clothes we wear, to the books we read and the phones we use, to the homes we live in and the public spaces we visit, most aspects of our built environment have been “designed” for us. This interdisciplinary team taught class will start by dismantling the notion that the practice of design is simply about making something look good and then move on to an examination of how professionals from a wide range of disciplines use design principles to achieve goals ranging from making a better widget to building a better world.
