INART 005H (GA) 3 credits
INART 005H offers an introduction to the performing arts of music, dance, and theatre. The class familiarizes students with the aesthetics, theory, and practice of professional performance by focusing on the experience of attending performing arts events and encouraging critical thinking about those experiences. Honors funding will be used to purchase tickets for five to six cultural events in various performing arts disciplines.
Class will not meet on the evenings that students attend performances, but class will meet on evenings when no performance is scheduled in order to discuss what has been experienced as well as prepare for the next event. Reading assignments may include reviews, critical essays, scripts, and other pertinent materials.

ENGL 030 (GWS) 3 credits
Like ENGL 15, ENGL 30 is a standard course in expository writing meant to introduce students to the types of analytical academic writing and research expected at the college level. Enrollment in ENGL 30 is based primarily on FTCAP scores. However, if a student has taken AP English in high school and/or has experience in writing analytical papers in which an argument about a focused point is advanced, then ENGL 30 may be an appropriate course.
This course closely examines rhetorical objectives, considering the relationship of writer and reader and the accordant shaping of prose to negotiate the distance between the writer and his/her audience. Classes are held in seminar-style and incorporate interactive discussion among students and professor.
