HFA Connect RAP is an opportunity for students who are entering declared in any HFA (College of Humanities & Fine Arts) major or undeclared in the Humanities & Fine Arts Exploratory Track to live together and have their collegiate first-year seminar taught in the residential area.
In this one-credit RAP seminar students will participate in stimulating discussions and collaborative learning projects. We hope to update the course description by early May.
Read what Fall 2022 instructor Dylan Larke has to say about the RAP seminar:
Inequality, Injustice & Mindfulness in the Humanities and Fine Arts is an interactive First Year Seminar designed to support students enrolled in the College of Humanities and Fine Arts (HFA), either as an HFA major or a student in the HFA Exploratory Track. Through using creative and mindful-based contemplative practices such as journal writing, drawing and coloring, this course supports first year students interested in the humanities and fine arts as they critically explore and examine issues of inequality and injustice. This academic experience will provide students with a strong sense of awareness of their own personal and social identities, while encouraging them to build meaningful connections that can help them be more successful in college and beyond.
