LAHP Theory and Methodology Courses are an important part of the LAHP minor.
Each of these courses:
- Is taught by a top member of the Liberal Arts faculty on a topic of their choosing.
- Focuses on the theoretical or methodological foundations of a given discipline – on how knowledge is produced in various disciplines across Liberal Arts.
- Should be taken as soon as possible upon admission into the LAHP.
- Will be offered at least once each semester (Fall and Spring).
- Are restricted to LAHP students.
- Will always be open to all LAHP students, even those who have already taken two theory and methodology courses (space allowing)
