Health Themed Blugold Seminars

Most students satisfy their university writing requirement by taking a Blugold Seminar in Critical Reading and Writing (WRIT 114, 116, 118 or 120). While all sections are built upon a standard curriculum focusing on a common set of four learning goals, each professor selects a theme or broad topic for his or her class. In collaboration with the English department, the Institute for Health Sciences promoted the development of a health-themed Blugold Seminar—“Bodies of Knowledge”—for students interested in a health professions career. The course was offered in the fall 2015 and again in spring 2016. Based on student feedback and interest, there will be four health-themed Blugold Seminars in the fall 2016 providing even greater opportunity for students to explore health-related issues while fulfilling their university writing requirement.
