Welcome to college. Now what?
Paul Powers introduces Exploration and Discovery—better known as E&D— the course where you can immerse yourself in an array of the great texts (like Plato, Freud, the Bible, and Woolf); improve your writing, reading, and speaking skills; and discover what the liberal arts are really all about.
This innovative, two-semester program will introduce you to important ideas and works in the tradition of the liberal arts, and help you develop the college-level skills necessary to succeed at Lewis & Clark—and beyond. We’re proud to offer such a unique opportunity to our first-year students.
In the fall, you’ll work closely with your small section and instructor to read, discuss, and write papers on provocative works of philosophy, literature, religion, and science. Scheduled E&D lectures and films take place in the late afternoon or evening, and offer additional food for thought.
During spring you’ll apply your freshly-honed skills to a rigorous seminar course—topics vary depending upon each instructor’s interest and expertise, and have ranged from war, the environment, and human rights, to vampires, the Big Bang theory, and the concept of scandal.
E&D is a reading, writing, and talking-intensive course that allows you to explore new ideas and discover your academic potential. Small sections and committed faculty result in solid feedback and individual attention and a unifying curriculum of ideas, concepts, and approaches results in a community of thinkers with common ground and informed, diverse opinions.
