FSEM 101 - Addressing Inequality in the U.S.: An Integrated FYS

Is inequality a trap set by society? Can we do something about it? Should we? This innovative First-Year Seminar will explore these questions and consider possible solutions through the lens of four disciplines: art + design, literature, politics, and sociology. You will engage with four professors from these areas over the course of the semester, working collaboratively and individually toward a final project that will draw on interdisciplinary thinking to address urgent social problems. Topics will include housing inequality, poverty, racial discrimination, and the politics of public art. You will meet in small class groups led by your individual faculty advisor, but will come together with other professors and students in a joint investigation of these topics.
