LBAT 2000U – Introduction to Liberal Studies


What does the subject of liberal studies entail? Tracing how the foundational disciplines of a liberal education (the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences) have developed historically, students will examine the kinds of questions these disciplines pose, as well as the distinctive ways they go about answering them. Students will discuss and evaluate theories of what knowledge, skills, attributes and abilities a liberal education demands and fosters. Students are expected to read widely and reflect critically on the civic, professional and personal justifications for (and objections to) pursuing such a course of study today.
