Introductory Honors Program Courses

UHP 189 sections do not require permission to enroll unless they are associated with a CAT Community

UHP189 Honors 1st-year Seminar - Top/Reading Old Stuff

Section Type Number Units Days Hours Facility Instructor K-State 8
A SEM 14067 1 F 9:30 LSP 112 Kearns, Sara K None
Historical and cultural documents provide insight into our world. But what if we can’t read them? During this class, we will explore historical documents and artefacts that may include handwritten letters, photographs, maps, and even physical objects. Our goal will be to make sense of them by asking questions and learning how to find answers for those questions. We will jointly explore items through in-class and out-of-class activities. Students in any major will be able to apply their experience reading cultural documents to future research.

 

UHP189 Honors 1st-year Seminar - Top/Breaking the Art/Science Divide

Section Type Number Units Days Hours Facility Instructor K-State 8
C SEM 14069 1 U 9:30 LSP 111 Luly, Sara None

We often think of the arts (for example, literature) as the opposite of science. But what happens if you use literature to understand mental illness? Read a medical case file as a work of literature? Study bio-chemical responses to art? This CAT community looks at the intersection of the arts and science.

How does science shape our understanding of the arts? What can literature and art teach us about science?This section is exclusively for students enrolled in the "Breaking the Art/Science Divide" CAT Community. See "CAT Community" section below for full details.

 

UHP189 Honors 1st-year Seminar - Top/Public Health & Sherlock

Section Type Number Units Days Hours Facility Instructor K-State 8
D SEM 14070 1 F 11:30 LSP 127 Kastner, Justin None
Nineteenth-century discoveries in microbiology, epidemiology, and public health coincided with literary innovations (e.g., Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes) and real-life dramas (including alarming crimes committed by the likes of Jack the Ripper). Three of Britain’s Victorian-era cities—Edinburgh, Liverpool, and London— provided colorful contexts in which public health leaders (including physicians, veterinarians, and medical officers of health) began to sort out (and set aside) professional differences for larger societal goals. This course, designed primarily (but not exclusively) for pre-medicine, pre-veterinary, and pre-health-profession honors students, follows the growth of these inter-professional partnerships. Through lectures, readings, and primary-source materials, students will meet memorable figures who had a hand in late 19th-century advancements in human medicine, veterinary public health, food safety, and the "One Health" philosophy.

 

UHP189 Honors 1st-year Seminar - Top/Technology-Culture-Power

Section Type Number Units Days Hours Facility Instructor K-State 8
F SEM 14072 1 M 4:00 EH 012 Subramony, Deepak None
In today’s ‘Information Age’ economic system, technology = power. Besides, within today’s globalized human societies, technology also embodies and transmits people's cultures and values. In this seminar we explore the fascinating role of technology in influencing power dynamics, setting off cultural trends, and shaping ethical/moral values across this diverse planet of ours.

 

UHP189 Honors 1st-year Seminar - Top/Music, Politics, & Ideology

Section Type Number Units Days Hours Facility Instructor K-State 8
G SEM 14073 1 U 4:00 EH 016 Dobrzanski, Slawomir None
Have you ever wondered how music reflects the political, social, and economic struggles of its times? Do people compose music to support an existing political order, or do they create music to provoke revolution and transformation? In this seminar we explore how selected Western classical music pieces have impacted human politics. It also examines events from music history that have significantly influenced our recent ideological battles.

 

UHP189 Honors 1st-year Seminar - How to Save the World: Gender, Justice, and Food

How can we make the world more sustainable and just? What responsibility do humans have to the natural environment? How does race, class, gender, and global location intersect in environmental issues? In this class we explore how food, sustainability, and environmental action intersect with gender and learn the actions you can take to make a better, more sustainable, and just world.

ENGL210 Honors English

Section Type Number Units Days Hours Facility Instructor K-State 8

No permission required to enroll. ENGL 210 can be used as a substitute for either ENGL 100 or ENGL 200.

Description: Descartes famously wrote: "I doubt therefore I am -- or what is the same -- I think, therefore I am," thus establishing a key tenet of the Western worldview: we know we are alive because we can contemplate just what that means. We are all trying to make sense of the world and our place in it, and we will use this class to explore how young people, in particular, have sought to define themselves in the modern world. How do we know when to conform and when to rebel, when to believe and when to doubt? What motivates our decisions and builds our sense of political agency? What societal structures impact that agency? Ultimately, you will seek to answer this question for yourself: Who do I want to be in the world? We will read and watch a variety of texts in this hands-on seminar that will include regular writing exercises and a critical essay project, and depend upon engaged peer discussions and writing workshops.

MATH 350 (along with MATH 351 in Spring 2023) will form the second-year Calculus sequence for students in the Mathematical Scholars Program (MSP). However, students do not need to be in the MSP to take the course. Math 350/351 will provide an integrated approach to linear algebra, multivariable calculus and ordinary differential equations. Students will learn conceptual and computational techniques of linear algebra first and find immediate applications for ordinary differential equations and multivariable calculus. Topics include vector spaces, linear transformations, solutions to matrix equations, dimension, rank, eigenvalues, inner products, Sylvester's Theorem, multi-linear algebra, vector valued functions, vector fields and general ordinary differential equations. Applications to three dimensional geometry and ordinary differential equations will be made throughout.

Honors CAT Community Option -- Breaking the Art/Science Divide

We often think of the arts (for example, literature) as the opposite of science. But what happens if you use literature to understand mental illness or read a medical case file as a work of literature? What if you analyze bio-chemical responses to art? Together we will explore the intersection of the arts and science so we can begin to understand how science shapes our understanding of the arts and the ways in which literature and art teach us about science. This CAT Community is for Honors students in the College of Arts and Sciences.
