Courses

Research suggests that Living-Learning Community students who participate in shared courses are more engaged with their academics and satisfied with their college experience.  Although courses available for communities vary each year, most LLCs provide students the opportunity to co-enroll in a course affiliated with the theme of their community. 
 
BizHawk students will enroll in a course cluster, which will include two General Education courses.  To complete the course cluster, members will also enroll in a mathematics course, as part of their individual business curriculum requirements.  Multiple course clusters will be available. An example of one possible cluster is below:
  • SOC:1010 Introduction to Sociology
  • COMM:1174 Media and Society
  • MATH:XXXX
Cluster course options for Fall 2014 may include:
  • Understanding American Cultures
  • Elementary Psychology
  • Contemporary Environmental Issues
  • Sex & Pop Culture in the Postwar US
  • Principles of Social Psychology
  • Living Religions of the East
  • Chemistry in Industry and the Economy
  • Anthropology and Contemporary World Problems
  • Social Media Today
At Orientation, BizHawks will meet with an academic advisor who will help you select a cluster and build the rest of your schedule.
