The reflection tier consists of a single module, the University Scholars Programme Senior Seminar, USR4002. It is designed to bring students together towards the end of their degree to reflect on the conditions of their own disciplinary knowledge and the assumptions developed in disciplinary framework to approach discourse and ideas with.
Taught by a multidisciplinary faculty of three to four, this senior class examines a theme from several disciplinary perspectives. Students are challenged to critically read and productively respond to assumptions, evidence and methods from sciences, social sciences and humanities. Themes on “Future Times” and “Violence” have been examined. Assignments include weekly blog, ePortfolio, and eMagazine contribution.
