The Sophomore Colloquia are small seminar-style courses limited to second-year students in Columbian College. These courses engage students deeply in a discipline, focus on a narrow issue of high interest and impact, and require independent research projects of the students. Topics vary by semester. Consult the schedule of classes for more details. Instructor's permission is required.
This course fulfills the GPAC requirements for creative thinking and oral communications. The goals of the class are 1) to give students a thorough understanding of the subject/topic of the scheduled colloquium, 2) to help students significantly improve their writing skills through numerous analytical writing assignments, and 3) allow students to demonstrate the ability to create a new scholarly argument based on a set of findings. In oral presentations, the goals are to 1) identify significant presentation topics; 2) prepare presentations that have a clear thesis and persuasive argument; 3) demonstrate topical and disciplinary knowledge through well-crafted and audience-appropriate language; and 4) demonstrate vocal and physical qualities that augment content and maintain audience interest.
