This is an Integrated Learning Course, which emphasizes the third Undergraduate Learning Outcome: Identity and Culture. This course focuses on enabling students to understand complex social identities, including deaf identities, and the interrelations within and among diverse cultures and groups. The Honors version of this course also emphasizes more sophisticated readings, research tools, questions, evidence, and analysis typical of upper level courses. This course will be taught by one or more faculty members and will focus on a central topic while drawing material from more than one discipline; topics will vary from section to section and semester to semester. Students will engage in experiential learning activities related to a City-as-Text feature, which may include service learning opportunities, to reinforce and enhance the academic content of the course.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
