Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design

http://catalog.ku.edu/architecture/design/bfa/

Undergraduate Advising for Design Why is advising important?  Proper enrollment is critically important to a student's time in college ( every class is an investment ), but enrollment advice is only part of what an advisor can do to help. Advisors are guides to help students navigate the wealth of resources and opportunities at the University of Kansas. They are advocates for students in need, and they are liaisons between students and the institutions that serve them. Most importantly, advisors help students identify their ambitions and, from time to time, mentor them to effectively pursue those ambitions. In addition to Zac Shields, the professional advisor for Design students, faculty in KU Design are also available in these capacities, because we know that it takes a village to train some of the best Designers around! What are my responsibilities as a student? The Department of Design works tirelessly to support our students. That said, we believe that students do best when they take personal ownership of their education! Design students should keep the following general rules in mind: Ask questions. Your instructors and advisor do their best to keep up to speed, but they can best help you if you ask! Show up and give it your best. (see our policy on attendance, professionalism, and participation ) Keep it fair. Don't plagiarize. (see our policy on Academic Misconduct ) Design students should plan to meet with Zac Shields, the professional advisor for Design students, or a faculty advisor at least once per semester to discuss the current semester and plan for the next! General Availability: Zac is available by appointment Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays each week between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Students should schedule an appointment (recommended duration in parentheses) to discuss any of the following: Next-Semester Enrollment (30 minutes) Prospective Interest in Studying Design (30 minutes) Graduation Checks (30 minutes) Probation Action Plans (60 minutes) Financial Aid Appeals (60 minutes) For other questions, Zac is available by appointment or on a drop-in basis! Zac's drop-in hours are Mondays and Fridays each week from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Students are also welcome to call Zac at 785-864-2959 with questions and concerns, just as they would with an email or in-person drop-in. They should include their name and KUID number with their question(s)! Appointment Options: Zac is available to meet by appointment with students either in person (Marvin Hall room 200) or over the phone (785-864-2959) - whichever is best for them! How to Set Up an Appointment: Students are welcome to set up an appointment in any of these ways: Select a time on Zac's online calendar (recommended for current Design students). Email ZacShields@ku.edu and include a few days and general times in the next two weeks that work well for them. Call Zac at 785-864-2959 and state their name, KUID number (if they're a KU student), and a few days and general times in the next two weeks that work well for them. Students are welcome to meet with Zac Shields, the professional advisor for Design students, regardless of their year in school, admission status at KU, or admission status for KU Design.

Bachelor of Arts in German Studies

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/germanic-languages-literatures/ba/

Why study German Studies? Knowledge of the language and culture of German-speaking Europe provides students with linguistic and transcultural competence that will enable them to participate productively in a rapidly changing world. German is an official language in six central European countries and the most widely spoken language in the European Union. The United States maintains important economic, political, security, and cultural ties with the German-speaking countries. About 50 million people in the United States claim German ancestry. Our students complete a diverse and challenging program that encompasses not only the German language but also courses that explore literature, the arts, history, business, and politics. Our program is characterized by interdisciplinary flexibility, a variety of co-curricular activities, and personalized academic advising and mentoring. German Studies majors acquire research skills they need to study issues relevant to our field. Many German Studies majors and minors study abroad for a summer, semester, or year, often supported by departmental scholarships, and some complete internships in Germany. All German Studies students have opportunities to make use of the rich resources available at KU, including the Spencer Museum of Art, KU Libraries, Max Kade Center for German-American Studies, Office of Study Abroad, and Center for Undergraduate Research.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in History

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/history/ba-bgs/

Why study history? Who? What? Where? When? are the questions most commonly associated with the study of history. But these are only bits of information, bubbles on a multiple-choice test. They are not history. They are the building blocks of history, parts that when put together in the right way become history. History does not just record a sequence of events in the past. The practice of history examines change overtime and tries to understand the forces that contributed to those changes. Historians are most interested in questions that begin by asking ‘why’ or ‘how.’ These questions demand complex answers about who we are, how we have come to where we are, and what forces have shaped humanity through time. How did Spanish conquistadors manage to defeat the Aztec Empire? Why did Napoleon try to conquer Europe? How did the Industrial Revolution contribute to global warming? Why did Taiwan break off from mainland China? These questions demand complex answers. In trying to come up with those answers historians turn to the building blocks of who, what, where, and when to assemble the historical evidence in a way that answers the big question.  In a culture that places primary value only on living in the present, studying history can offer a rare foundation for critiquing or at least comprehending the current state of the world. Studying history helps you cut through the myths that cloud our understanding of ourselves and others, and offers a depth of comprehension that few other disciplines can promise. The following are some key characteristics of the history department and major: Useful : The study of history at the collegiate level emphasizes vital lifelong skills. These include critical thinking, analysis of qualitative and quantitative sources, research methods and practices, persuasive writing, and articulate speaking. The skills acquired through historical study can be transferred easily to any number of future careers and occupations. Graduates with KU History degrees have go on to become lawyers, business professionals, teachers, consultants, journalists, social workers, archivists, civil servants, and even medical doctors. Welcoming:  Few limits exist to what you may study. Politics, sexual relations, art, labor, literature, rebellion, war - the Department of History draws no boundaries between what you may and may not examine. To that end it also shares students and faculty with other programs such as African and African American Studies,  Women and Gender Studies, Environmental Studies, Global and International Studies, Indigenous Studies, and all of the geographical area studies programs. Flexible : Students must take only two required courses - a course on historical methods ( HIST 301 ) and a senior research seminar ( HIST 696 ) or honors thesis ( HIST 690 & HIST 691 ). Because few courses have sequential prerequisites, History is easy to take as a minor or as a second major. Worldly : History is excellent preparation for travel and work abroad, and around thirty majors yearly participate in KU’s  Study Abroad  program. The Department of History itself offers overseas opportunities, such as a pre-law institute at Cambridge University. Intimate :  Courses  in the department are usually small, and the larger courses always include trained Graduate Teaching Assistants to give individual attention and feedback. All students take at least two seminars of no more than fifteen students, and honors students work one-on-one with a faculty member. Further, students in the Department have organized movie nights, lectures, and informal get-togethers, so you are never lost in the crowd. Prominent:    Faculty  in the department are nationally and internationally recognized leaders in their field, and they bring this advanced knowledge to bear on their teaching. Resourceful:  Resources for history research at KU are rich. Watson and Anschutz libraries help make up a major research library collection, and the Spencer Research Library offers such resources as the Wilcox Collection on extremist politics, the University Archives, and major collections in British and Irish history, among others.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/women-gender-sexuality-studies/ba-bgs/

Why study women, gender and sexuality studies? Because much of what people think they know about women, gender, and sex is myth.  Our department seeks to produce intellectually rigorous, analytical and creative work that embodies the perspective of gender in its local and global dimensions through teaching, research, and outreach activities.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Anthropology

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/anthropology/ba-bgs/

The Anthropology Department at the University of Kansas Anthropologists are concerned with the origin, history, and future of the human species. Our mission is to further our understanding of past and present human societies in their cultural, biological, and environmental contexts. As flows of people, ideas, money, and goods are crossing borders at unprecedented speeds, we are encountering human diversity now, more than ever before. The discipline provides students the knowledge and skills they will need to navigate these complex, multicultural, and rapidly changing worlds. Because we study what it is to be human, the field is one of the most wide-ranging of the academic disciplines. There are four main subdisciplines of anthropology: Archaeology is concerned with studying the human past based on the material culture left behind. Biological or physical anthropology is concerned with human evolution and variation. Linguistic anthropology focuses on the relationship between language and culture, as well as the documentation of the history and evolution of languages over time and across space. Cultural anthropology is concerned with the many ways humans organize themselves to live together, questioning past and present patterns of meaning and power relationships on local and global scales. Anthropologists across all of the subdisciplines apply holistic, comparative, and evolutionary perspectives and a range of methodologies in their research. We are committed to fieldwork and the application of this knowledge to helping people better understand one another. Why Study Anthropology? Students have many reasons for wanting to major in anthropology. Some are curious about the origins of the human species. Others are fascinated the diversity of human experiences in ancient and modern periods. Some students intend to pursue international careers, where they will use languages and work in cultural contexts very different from those in which they were raised. Others plan to work in museums collecting and curating human cultural resources. Some wish to pursue graduate training in one of the field’s subdisciplines, while others seek to use their anthropological training as preparation for professional schools, including law, medicine, public health, journalism, business, and engineering. There are many professions where the broad scientific, humanistic, and multicultural knowledge available through the study of anthropology can be useful—in education, healthcare, law, social work, business, human resources, public affairs, cultural resource management, or laboratory research. Anthropological Research Opportunities at KU Laboratory of Biological Anthropology (LBA):  Founded in 1975, the LBA was established as a research center of the University of Kansas. The LBA has supported graduate and undergraduate student research in biological anthropology, human genetics, and genetic epidemiology. Archaeological Research Center:  Located in historic Spooner Hall on the main campus, the archaeology laboratory offers research space and support to Anthropology faculty and graduate students, Archaeology staff, Museum Studies interns, affiliate curators and research associates and visiting scholars. Field Schools:  Anthropology faculty offer field schools in archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Undergraduates and graduate students have conducted independent and collaborative research in the United States, including Alaska; Mexico, Central, and South America; sub-Saharan Africa; and Asia.  For specific questions about our program, please contact us : The University of Kansas Department of Anthropology Undergraduate Program 1415 Jayhawk Blvd., 622 Fraser Hall Lawrence, KS 66045 E-mail:  kuanthro@ku.edu Phone: (785) 864-2630 Fax: (785) 864-5224 http://anthropology.ku.edu/overview-ba-anthropology

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Religious Studies

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/religious-studies/ba-bgs/

The undergraduate degree in the Department of Religious Studies is a research, analysis, and writing intensive program that features close work with faculty in small classroom settings. It seeks to develop a foundational knowledge of the world’s diversity of religious cultures and critical awareness of the ways in which religion shapes how we see and act toward ourselves, others, and the environment around us. Through the study of specific religious traditions and settings, students come away with a background that is invaluable to understanding and working with people of other cultures, whether in international business or simply as an informed global citizen.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in English

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/english/ba-bgs-english/

Why study English language and literature? Because reading and writing shape the world. KU's English Department is at the core of the humanities, highlighting the "human" through our individual, one-on-one interactions with our students, our emphasis on community and global engagement, and our abiding interest in our shared humanity through the stories of others. We seek to challenge the mind and to engage the imagination of our students, to teach them to ask questions and to seek for answers.  We encourage them to grapple with the complexity of a culturally and commercially interconnected world and the global networks and processes of cultural exchange. We believe that words and ideas will shape the world. We teach our students life-long skills, so that they learn to write clearly, creatively, and effectively—discovering themselves even as they lay a solid foundation for professional success.  A commitment to teaching and learning. Our department is renowned for its tradition of excellence in teaching.  The vast majority of our undergraduate classes have 20-35 students, and much of the class time is dedicated to active learning and engagement with texts and ideas.

English majors graduate to a variety of careers, including law, teaching, scholarship, publishing, library science, and journalism--as well as medicine, politics, design, and any number of other fields that value clear communication, interpretive skill, and critical and creative thinking.  Engaged and innovative scholarship. KU's English Department has several core strengths that cross tracks and periods, including Global and Cross-Cultural Approaches; Literature, Rhetoric, and Social Action; Diversity Studies; Language, Literature and Science; and Popular Expressive Forms. At the KU English Department, students work closely with nationally-renowned writers and researchers. Our faculty have won national awards that recognize excellence in research, including grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Philosophical Society, and the Newberry Library, among others. English Department faculty members have also received major research funding from the University of Kansas, including the Hall Center for the Humanities Research fellowships and Keeler Intra-University Fellowships for interdisciplinary work. Undergraduate students can work one-on-one with faculty mentors in the Honors Program, McNair Scholars Program, and Dean's Scholars Program, as well as through independent Directed Studies.
