Students in the Faculty Scholars Program extend themselves through intensive reading and searching discussion of challenging texts. Weekly lectures introduce the texts and set them in context. Students then explore the texts in depth in weekly seminars. The texts covered in this unit, the first that Faculty Scholars enrol in, are classics of literature and thought from a range of cultures and time periods. Critical engagement with these texts provides a foundation for subsequent units' exploration of more specialised topics.
