Intersections continues the process of intellectual discovery begun in Frontiers by focusing students’ attention on the problem-solving methods and epistemologies used by selected disciplines to address complex contemporary issues. Topic-based sections are co-taught by faculty who introduce students to their respective disciplinary or epistemological approaches. Students will refine their ability to problem-solve by approaching today’s most pressing problems from multiple perspectives and by developing new strategies for analysis, understanding, and reflection on their own process of gathering knowledge. Emphasis is on collaborative, student-led assignments and work.
