CCS 100 - Cultural Seminar


4 Hour(s)
In Carroll University’s General Education program, Cultural Seminar is required for all incoming freshmen and is designed to support a student’s successful transition into Carroll University as well as an introduction to cultural awareness and competency. The Cultural Seminar, CCS 100, is a course designed as a gateway learning experience through which students explore their own culture and a culture different from their own. Most Cultural Seminar sections examine a different topic, but all have common learning outcomes focused on the understanding of culture. Upon completion of CCS-100, students will have met the following learning outcomes: •Demonstrate understanding of similarities and differences between the student’s own culture and a different culture. •Demonstrate understanding of multiple perspectives of a global issue through the common read and course topic. •Be able to express orally and in writing, with supporting materials, an understanding of the student’s own culture and a different culture. •Demonstrate information fluency by gathering, analyzing, and synthesizing information using emerging technologies and traditional media. Students will address the following: ◦Demonstrate the ability to gather and integrate information from a variety of sources. ◦Demonstrate the abilities to assess the credibility and to weigh the value of information from different sources. ◦Communicate knowledge using emerging technologies. •Demonstrate familiarity with Carroll University policies, procedures and support services which will help to facilitate academic success through participation in the required PioCore course components following CCS 100. Students are encouraged to select a CCS 100 seminar topic that interests them, regardless of their intended major. Cultural Seminar topics cover a broad range of ideas and issues, but all with a focus on culture. Honors Program students should enroll in the designated honors sections (CCS 100H  section A or B). Non-traditional or returning students should enroll in CCS199.
