What students are saying about INQR

INQR 1000 Happiness

"The thing I appreciated the most about my INQR class, was the discussions my professors led. It helped me think deeper about the topics we were learning and helped me understand the movies we watched more. I also enjoyed the EXPO because it allowed me to explore the other classes and different topics in a brief period of time."

— Jessie Yuan

Free Speech Presentation

"The inquiry is a great way for students to do research and have questions answered on a certain topic. I believe this course will help guide us as students to help solve problems and it is great way to inspire students on what they want to do in the future"

 Kishan Bhagwandas

INQR 1000 Presentation

"Inquiry 1000 is a class designed to enhance the research abilities of new college student while providing them with an enriching learning experience that allows them to obtain insight in prospective careers. This course is valuable due to the fact that it prepares students for real world inquisition, analysis, and communication in areas of their interests."

— Brandon Edwards


CORE COURSE IN AREA B

Inquiry 1000 is a one credit hour, small group, discussion-based course designed to engage lower division students in the discovery, exploration, and analysis of ideas that faculty members, across a variety of disciplines, study and investigate. This course fulfills the Core Course requirement in Area B.

DESIGN OF COURSE

All courses will be seminar format, 18-22 students per course with an end of term capstone event—INQR EXPO—an academic festival showcasing student work via posters, photos and videos.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Develop and ask relevant questions which require discovery, research, and/or creativity to answer;
  • Collect appropriate resources to help answer a question;
  • Engage in positive and meaningful discussion with various individuals within the class representing multiple perspectives on a question; and
  • Contribute effectively to a group to produce answers to a question using written, oral, and/or graphic skills.
