The WVU Department of Philosophy is sponsoring two events on Thursday, March 30th with guest Professor David Barnard from the Oregon Health & Science University.
Seven faculty were selected from a competitive field of submissions to create original courses for students in the Honors College. The Faculty Fellows program rewards professors for developing innovative curriculum while enriching the intellectual climate of the campus. The Fellows will deliver a public lecture based on their courses and participate in faculty development activities. Their courses will be offered in Fall 2017. Check out the WVUToday press release for more information on the types of courses being offered. All Honors Students are welcome to enroll in the courses.
It’s almost registration time!!! The list of Honors courses for next semester is now available at this link. See your advisor prior to your designated registration day, so you will be prepared and get the courses you want. Course descriptions will be posted in next week’s eBlast.
