FSEM: The City as University
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
One of the strengths of Hamline is that it is located in the middle of an enriched urban area. During a student’s college years, they should take advantage of the many resources in the city that can complement their academic program on campus. The whole city should be considered the campus of the university. This course introduces first year students to the city—its cultural, political, business, charitable and civic life. An emphasis will be placed on the local community. City leaders will speak with the students and share how they build community and how the students can be active citizens. Developing a strong ethic of citizenship is one objective of a Hamline education. This seminar explores what it means to be an active and fully engaged citizen student. Students will learn what it means to be co-creators of democracy. Students will prepare a plan to be a fully engaged student during their college years.
