HUM - Venture Humanities

HUM-101: Venture Humanities I (Credits: 4)

Venture is an interdisciplinary Humanities course that explores human mobility and residency in a globalizing world. Students will read, view, discuss, and write about a variety of stories, images, and ideas of migration an inhabitation. We will seek to understand the importance of deep communication and genuine respect across cultural differences and geographical borders. The Venture course will offer a transformative opportunity for encounter and understanding between traditional-age Westminster students and adult learners from the local community. Venture I integrates literary studies and history, while Venture II combines philosophy and art history. There are no prerequisites. However, in order to benefit fully from the experience, students are strongly encourages to complete the two courses sequentially in a single year.
