Many of these courses meet goal areas and graduation requirements, including:
- INFS 115: GELS elective
- INFS 315: Upper division Liberal Studies goal, GELS elective
- INFS 340: Goal 1: Communication, Goal 5: History and the Social and Behavioral Sciences, upper division Liberal Studies goal, GELS elective
If that weren’t enough…
In addition to the joy of intellectual curiosity, these courses cover many current societal issues including privacy, censorship, and the evaluation of arguments and information.
These courses are especially useful for students interested in continuing their post-BA studies in the fields of library science, museum work, law, writing, and professional communication.
Many of these courses compose the Research and Information Studies minor.
