Honors Seminar

This is the landing page for my multi-part tutorial on how to approach and succeed in an undergraduate Honors Seminar. It’s called “Mastering the Human Event.”

The “Human Event” is the name of the first-year interdisciplinary “Great Ideas” seminar I taught at Barrett Honors College at ASU for six years. I have produced this series based on my experience teaching this course and prior philosophy courses. I hope all Barrett students–current, prospective, or past–find this tutorial helpful and informative. And I hope all students who take a similar course, whether in high school or college, will find much that they can apply as well.

I plan to produce additional tutorials in due time. Current projects in the works include one on argumentative writing and another on writing an Honors thesis. I want to serve the needs of teacher and student communities, so if you have any ideas for tutorials or posts that you’d like to see, drop me a line at joel@joelhunterphd.com.

Thanks for reading, sharing, linking, and discussing!
