Paths to Knowledge

Each Paths to Knowledge (PATHS) course is unique, asking students to consider different interdisciplinary topics from many angles.

This course is required for anyone who is fulfilling their General Education requirements using Honors courses instead of Areas of Inquiry (AOI) courses. The course is designed to help you reflect upon your interdisciplinary courses of the past and prepare you to make the most out of your interdisciplinary studies in the future. The foci of sections of Paths to Knowledge differ depending upon the Honors faculty teaching. The lab must be taken with the same instructor(s) who is/are teaching the course.

Spring 2015 HONR 100:Paths to Knowledge courses will address:
