AMST 330 - Mellon Seminar

The Mellon Seminar is for students who are the recipients of the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship. The course is interdisciplinary, in order to meet the needs of students across the Mellon-designated fields. They will develop their academic interests to the fullest, with the intent to enter Ph.D. programs, and careers in higher education. We will cover topics such as “contemporary issues in higher education,” “the politics of knowledge production,” and “preparing to apply to graduate school.” This course is designed to train students who will purse PhDs and subsequent careers in academia in selected core fields in the Arts and Sciences. Our objective is to prepare for the Professoriate. May be repeated for credit when the topic differs. Offered on S/SN grading only. (2 Credits)
