Interdisciplinary Seminars

Interdisciplinary Seminars

Interdisciplinary Seminars (IDS) are courses that integrate and synthesize multiple perspectives on complex issues such as environmental change, health care or global cities. IDS courses aim to help every student begin to apply and appreciate holistic thinking.

The IDS 200-level classes focus on the Benedictine and Catholic Intellectual Heritage; the IDS 300-level classes focus on the Person and the Common Good.

Many of the seminars will also meet other requirements such as the Global, Sustainable or Writing Intensive designations, and/or the Learning Community and Engaged Learning requirements.

Learning Communities

Learning Communities

What are Learning Communities?

Learning Communities are experiences in which students integrate and apply knowledge learned in their classes with experiences outside the classroom. These communities are designed to have students work together in groups in order to learn and problem-solve more effectively. All Learning Communities therefore include course-related activities that take place outside the classroom or off-campus. At Benedictine University, Learning Communities can be stand-alone courses, two linked courses or  a group of students who take a series of courses together (cohort). Examples of Learning Communities at Benedictine University include our music ensembles, Model United Nations, the Scholars Program, the Catholic Studies Learning Community, mission service trips and faculty-led study abroad.

Why take Learning Community courses?

Studies show students can learn effectively in the type of social environment that Learning Communities provide. They enhance learning, heighten student engagement and result in greater student success both academically and personally. At Benedictine University, Learning Communities will allow you greater contact and personal interaction with faculty members inside and outside of the classroom. Learning Communities will enrich your educational experience and help you to succeed academically and after graduation.

Engaged Learning

Engaged Learning

Engaged Learning experiences at Benedictine University might involve work in the larger campus community, a juried public performance or show of visual art or music, significant volunteer service, or an internship or professional project, public blog or e-portfolio. The common element in all of these experiences is that the student applies classroom learning and skills to experiences in the wider world. Engaged Learning experiences help prepare students for full participation in the world as effective citizens, community members and ethical professionals.

Some Engaged Learning experiences may be performed as a component of a traditional course while others are free-standing, such as internships. Many Engaged Learning experiences are paired with Learning Communities.
