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 differences and build confidence in students’ abilities to participate as citizens in a diverse democracy. Courses will be taken P/F.

Do I have to take a FlagSHIP course that is in my major, or if I’m an honors student, do I need to take an honors section of FlagSHIP?

No, you do not. FlagSHIP courses are not designated as any specific major or as honors. All FlagSHIP courses are coded as CDD, for Citizenship, Diversity, and Democracy. We encourage you to choose a course and an experience that interests you, regardless of your major.
