The Honors Symposium for the fall semester will be taught by Dr. Linda Fitzhugh. It is tentatively titled: History of the Environmental Movement. This course will examine how attitudes regarding the environment changed in the late 1800s as a result of industrialization. We will create a timeline identifying the people who introduced preservation and conservation as new ways to interact with the environment, and we will talk about how important journal writing is to scientific discovery and understanding. We will create our own nature journals where we will jot down notes from our time outdoors. Any hikes we take will be easy and will not require any special gear. If you are interested in learning more about the environment and environmental writers, then this class is for you! You will be graded on your class participation. You will also be graded on making a short presentation to the class on an environmental writer of your choice and you will create and use a nature journal. This class will include discussions, a bit of library research, some outdoor hikes, and time to make journal entries.
Honors Program students may also receive honors credit in other classes by making them Honors by Contract. You will need to meet with the Honors Director, Amber Clark, to get approval as well as the contract.
If you are taking an Honors by Contract course this Fall, signed contracts must be returned to the Honors Program office (LA05) before the start of classes.
