Honors Seminars

HON 200-M2 #Resist
Prof. Andre Robinson and Meghan Callaghan
M 6:00 PM - 8:45 PM B218

The themes of this seminar center upon issues fundamental to our values as a democratic republic -- free speech, political participation, equity, and social justice. This course looks at the broader history of protest, analyzing both individual and collective acts of resistance in order to understand why some succeed while others fail. We look at the role of technology and other factors. Students will participate in weekly discussions, conduct original research, and submit a final project.

HON 201H Ideas that Change the World
Prof. Alejandro Reuss of UMass Amherst
W 2:30 PM – 5:15 PM B135-A

HON 201H is a small, discussion-based interdisciplinary seminar. As an interdisciplinary seminar, this course illuminates ideas that cross the boundaries of the sciences and the humanities. Course materials draw from a range of influential works that raise issues of enduring importance. Throughout the semester we will examine groundbreaking ideas that have shaped our world, while also inquiring into our own potential for transformative creativity, innovation, and leadership.

Comprised of four units, each unit is organized around 1-2 primary texts/films, the writings of W.E.B. Du Bois, and supplemental readings at the discretion of the instructor (all materials available online).

Important Additional Information about HON 201H: This seminar is not visible in BHCC SelfService because it is offered by UMass Amherst. The course is free for students who are members of the Commonwealth Honors Program at BHCC. This course also transfers as an honors seminar to any Massachusetts Commonwealth Honors Program, provided that students earn a final grade of B or higher in the course.
