FlagSHIP FAQs

What is a FlagSHIP course?

This course will continue the work of the First-Year Seminar on Liberal Education and Citizenship (FYS) by focusing on the development of an inclusive academic community that prepares students to be informed and ethical citizens in a diverse, dynamic, and globalized world. Courses will be offered in an intensive-format Maymester or JanTerm, or a FlagSHIP-dedicated Spring or Summer course, and devoted to topics developed and offered by faculty from any discipline. Course formats may include study abroad or study away, community-integrative education, undergraduate research, or on-campus intensive-format seminar. These intensive and experiential learning opportunities will focus on exposing students to diverse points of view and people, improving intercultural competence and illuminating the complex systems and legacies (social, cultural, environmental, economic, political, and physical) that shape an increasingly interdependent world. Courses will also foster dialogue across difference and build confidence in students’ abilities to participate as citizens in a diverse democracy. Courses will be taken P/F.
