Goodwin College: Integrating Humanities into Career-Focused Programs

Planning for integrating humanities content into career-focused programs in business, manufacturing, homeland security, and criminal justice.

Goodwin College (Goodwin) seeks a Humanities Connections Planning Grant to undertake a broad-based assessment of its humanities curriculum with a goal to move toward an inter-disciplinary curriculum. Goodwin will integrate humanities courses with subject matter from its Manufacturing, Business, Homeland Security and Criminal Justice degree programs, with an average combined annual enrollment of 350 students. Over three years, including one planning year, we estimate 1,000 students will benefit from the new courses. Specific outcomes include course syllabi, which identify core competencies and include goals and assessments, recommended e-books, textbooks, and materials conducive to multiple types of learners. A planning committee comprising inter-institutional resources, including faculty, library staff, and administration will lead the project. External resources include CT Humanities staff, academic disciplines’ advisory boards’ members, and a professional development consultant.
