Freshman-Seminar-Spatial-logo“Thinking Spatially in the Arts and Sciences”

(1 credit, offered Spring Quarters)

2019 Exploration Seminar Agenda

Learn about the fascinating variety of spatial thinking, reasoning, and computing in the arts and sciences! Each week, a guest lecturer from a different department introduces a particular perspective on space, such as that of architecture, choreography, or epidemiology. In readings, discussions, small experiments, and essays, you will explore spatial thinking for problem solving (sciences and engineering), creative expression (arts), or interpretation (humanities). You will learn how maps, graphs, and virtual reality aid learning, analysis, understanding, decision making, and discovery.

Each class is taught by an instructor from a different department, showing the broad range of applications of spatial analysis in each field of study.
