FSEM: Wall Street Journal
Academic Term and Year
Hamline Plan Letter
Area of Study
The Wall Street Journal in both the traditional newspaper format as well as the online versions has evolved in recent years to provide an extraordinary scope of coverage ranging from Afghanistan to Zaire and from archeology to zoology (and just about everything in between!). Challenges and opportunities in the United States and around the world are increasingly complex and interconnected. We have in The Wall Street Journal the opportunity to probe topics of far-reaching importance to each student. This seminar will span topics as broadly as those noted above using the Journal as a springboard to develop verbal and written communication skills, critical analysis, a global outlook, and even improved study skills! The seminar will be highly interactive and will provide each student with the opportunity to develop a broad understanding of global topics as well as unique and more specific topics of individual interest. The seminar will also emphasize the intellectually “fun” side of communications by examining clever use of vocabulary and humor. Our interactive seminar style will draw perspective and energy from each student! Students will receive a copy of The Wall Street Journal, at a nominal cost, delivered daily for the semester and will also have access to the Online Journal. Because this is a Writing Intensive FYSem, you do not need to register for English 1110.
