Registering for Classes - Honors Option

A reminder that while we encourage you to take an Honors course each semester we do NOT require it. As noted in the link above we do not have many H courses offered this semester because of circumstances but we encourage you to use the Honors Option to make any course you are taking an Honors course. You do not need to register for Honors Option until you arrive on campus.

  • Sorry if this is an inappropriate venue, but I've been having trouble locating course descriptions online. I was just wondering if you could give some information on your Intro to Hebrew Bible class (ie is it in a historical/philosophical/religious context). Thank you for your time.

  • No problem -
    Course Description
    The Hebrew Bible is not a single unit. There are 39 separate (although related) books which constitute this ancient library. It is a diverse collection within which are represented a variety of genres which, when better understood, reveal a rich treasury of history, belief, and faith mingled together. In light of this wealth, it is not surprising that the Hebrew Bible continues to be of great importance to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In this course we will attempt to better understand the Hebrew Bible by examining samples of each of the major genres represented while at the same time placing each within their historical context. We will also address questions of interpretation as we look at how Hebrew Bible has been read and interpreted in the past (both near and distant) and begin to understand how these ancient texts continue to live and speak to so many.
