4.14 Interdepartmental (INT)

Course meets Triad Education Program Requirement in specified area.


INT 183 - Career Exploration 2cr

In this course, students develop the strategies and skills needed for an effective employment search. Students gain skills in resume building, cover letter writing, and interview best practices, and they establish an understanding of career options available to them as both interns and college graduates.


INT 184 - Academic Internship Seminar 2cr

This course allows students to consider their experience and growth while at their internship placement, to recognize their core values and future vision, and to identify themselves as leaders and change agents. Reflection takes place within the context of the Social Change Model of Leadership Development. This course is a requirement for any student interested in receiving academic credit for an internship.

Prerequisite: Prior approval by the Career Development Center, including a Learning Contract signed by the academic advisor.


INT 185 - Academic Internship Experience 1-16 cr

This course allows for students to gain credit based on the work that they have completed on-site during their internship experience. Students are eligible for up to one credit for every 40 hours worked at their internship site. This course must be taken along with INT 184 Academic Internship Seminar. This course is graded on a pass/fail basis.

Prerequisite: Prior approval by the Career Development Center, including a Learning Contract signed by the academic advisor.


INT 296 - Dialogue and Dialectic 4cr

This discussion-based course will delve into dialogue and dialectic. Dialogue and Dialectic are worthy opponents, if not actually mortal enemies. You have to recognize this from the start if you want to see how-it-is they become friends: complementarities. Dialogue, let's say for the sake of argument, is the shared effort to "get on the same page" and work toward the accomplishment of some task. Dialectic, on the other hand, is the shared effort to consider as well the nature of opposition and antagonism that is generally eliminated in dialogue, so as to understand a larger sense of communication and sustainable argument.


INT 316 - Medieval Islamic Cultures 4cr

This course presents an overview of the development of Islamic cultures from the time of the Prophet to the beginnings of Ottoman hegemony, with special focus on seminal works of religious thought and secular literature in cultural context. All readings are in modern English translation. Irregularly offered.

Language/Global Issues


INT 325 - Great Books I 1-2cr

This interdepartmental course is offered in each of the four terms and is serviced by approximately twenty faculty members who represent many of the academic disciplines at the College. Students select texts from an extensive list of titles offered and work individually with examiners. Fields represented include Environmental Studies, History/Political Science, Literature, Natural Sciences, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Social Science, and Women's Studies. For a list of texts and course guidelines, see the Great Books course director.

Prerequisite: Closed to students on academic probation and first-semester freshmen. Second-semester freshmen may register only by special permission.


INT 326 - Great Books II 1-2cr

This course is a continuation of INT 325 Great Books I with the same course guidelines, but students select different texts.

Prerequisite: INT 325 Great Books I. Closed to students on academic probation.


INT 391 - Integrative Studies Field Study 2-16cr

This course provides an opportunity to explore issues relevant to the theme of an individualized major and usually also that of the thesis project. An Integrative Studies committee member serves as faculty supervisor. Most field studies take the form of an internship or other work with an off-campus organization. A member of that organization serves as the off-campus supervisor, approving of the proposal before the study begins, and submitting written evaluations at the conclusion of the study. Students also submit written self-evaluations and reflections. Faculty supervisors use the aforementioned documents to determine the grade. One academic credit is earned for every 40 hours of fieldwork. This course may be repeated for a total of 16 credits. A maximum of 8 INT 391 credits may count toward the minimum of 40 credits required for the major. INT 391 credits do not count toward the 12 credits of 300 and 400 level courses required for the major. This course may not be taken concurrently with INT 480.

Prerequisites: Junior or senior standing. Integrative Studies major. Prior approval of an Integrative Studies proposal with Field Study included in the course of study. In addition, prior approval of a proposal for the Field Study itself, including objectives and activities in the study.


INT 480 - Integrative Studies Thesis 4cr

This course assists students in independently conducting an applied research or scholarly project, yielding a written thesis, and, occasionally, a creative product as a component of the thesis. The thesis demonstrates a comprehensive, integrated understanding of the theme or topic of the student's Integrative Studies major. Integrative Studies majors enrolled in this course meet regularly with each other and with the instructor, who is the Chair of the Integrative Studies committee, to discuss each other's projects and to provide response to each other's drafts. The student's advisor and two thesis readers (the thesis committee) each grade the final paper, and the advisor averages the grades to determine the final grade.

College Composition II

Prerequisites: Senior standing. Integrative Studies major. Prior approval of a thesis proposal by the Integrative Studies committee.

Course meets Triad Education Program Requirement in specified area.
