  HON-298C Honors Colloquium: 17th Century - the Emergence of the Modern World
3 Credits
  Intended to familiarize students with issues that characterize the Seventeenth Century. This course will explore tensions between science and religion, Old World and New World, and some of its major figures. Rather than focus solely on Europe, our investigation is global and extends to civilizations from Africa and Asia as well as the New Worlds of North and South America. In addition to readings, works of music and art that illuminate the themes of the 17th Century may also be studied. Prerequisite: ENG 101 and twelve college-level credits completed with a grade-point average of 3.3, or permission of instructor. (This course is open to first semester students.)
