The Honors Program Theory and Practice Living Learning Experience is an opportunity for sophomore students to live in Straz Tower and work in community to develop an understanding of ethical theorizing and how these theories actually function in practice - both contemplatively and in the world.
Participants will take two classes with fellow community members each semester:
Fall semester: HOPR 2953, Second-Year Honors Seminar
Spring semester: Philosophy 2310, Theory of Ethics
The courses include a living-learning component designed to offer the opportunity to investigate issues from a perspective that joins a specific disciplinary technique with a non-traditional academic approach in an effort to broaden the confines of intellectual inquiry. Spend your sophomore year living with others who have similar goals: to supplement the abstract objective rationality of academic studies with a first-person experiential perspective that sees with its own eyes, hears with its own ears, and evaluates from its own heart.
Applicants must be an accepted member of the University Honors Program and must have second-year (sophore level) status at the beginning of the Fall 2012 term.
