Developing an Interdisciplinary Curriculum to Foster Citizen Scholars

Planning for five interdisciplinary courses on the theme of resilience, co-taught by faculty in humanities and non-humanities fields.

This proposal outlines a rationale and timeline for the planning of a humanities-focused interdisciplinary curriculum initiative at Norwich University. Less than 3% of students at Norwich, most of whom plan to pursue careers in the military and service-oriented professions, are currently majoring in humanities fields. This initiative will demonstrate the relevance of humanities-based inquiry for all majors and provide hands-on experiential learning and research opportunities that will allow them to become engaged citizen scholars. Over a 12-month period, the planning team will partner with key stakeholders to recruit faculty, promote the program to the Norwich community, and create up to five co-curricular, co-instructed courses with the common theme of resilience. The goal of the planning grant will be to increase visibility and investment in the use-value of the humanities by establishing a pilot curriculum to be implemented in Fall 2019, aligning with Norwich’s bicentennial.
