University courses are designated by UNIV.
The University Experience
helps students develop the skills and strategies that will benefit them as they make the transition from high school to university. Class activities and assignments focus on critical and creative thinking, communication skills, self-awareness, information literacy, and the ability to work in teams. Students will explore the campus community and examine the role the university plays in our society.
Critical Reading and Writing: A Path to Future Studies
broadens students' understanding of the multi-disciplinary nature of the university. Concentrating on reading and writing activities in multiple media, students will see how dialogue and text are involved in defining, creating, supporting, debating, refining, and disseminating research-based knowledge. The course offers students an opportunity to improve their own skills in an active and collaborative learning environment. All sections of this course follow Critical Reading and Writing Course Guidelines available at www.mun.ca/hss/crw.
