Introduction to academic skills that foster success in college and after college, critical thinking, reading, and writing as well as study skills, time management and stress management, use of technology for communication and research. These skills will be learned through the topic of the course which will be based in the idea of "Self and Community," but will vary depending on the instructor and department teaching the course. Topics will be approached from a variety of perspectives that represent interdisciplinary academic inquiry, and students will consider how to take personal responsibility for academic and career choices through exploration of relationship between self and community. Students will be required to do either twelve hours of service learning related to the content of the course, or to meet other criteria for an equivalent number of hours spent in outside activities as determined by the instructor. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.
