NEWS BRIEF

Humanities class encourages students to open their minds

 

June 4, 2014 — What: Creative Thinking (HUM 246)

Inside the classroom: Is there a God? Should abortion be legal? Do aliens exist? Not every question has a definitive answer, and Professor Ilaria De Santis’ interactive class explores fresh perspectives in critical thinking, encouraging students to open their minds."Heated" topics include gender equality, bilingual education, moral beliefs -- always in the respect of different viewpoints.

Why this class sizzles: "Students are encouraged to think outside of the box. They receive a list of movies to watch at home and critique in order to enhance their creative/critical thinking skills. And they look 'sizzling' happy when they come back to class!" – De Santis
