Inspire 1A03

Have you ever hoped to take a course that would give you a chance to explore a range of topics? Have you wanted to take a class that gives you a chance to think about the interconnectedness of academic questions and topics? Have you wanted to take a 3-unit spring course that has no final exam or pre-requisites that will be completed by the end of May?

The second offering of INSPIRE 1A03 takes place this Intersession Term (May 3 – 28) where students will choose three of nine modules to build a course that interests them. During these modules, you will participate in discussions and hear of the latest advances in areas that you may be interested in but have never have the time or avenue to explore. Each module gives students an opportunity to explore a range of interesting topics including ‘Indigenous-led Social Activism in the Dish With One Spoon Treaty Territory’;’ Reclaiming the Doodle – Visual Communicat ion for Impact’; and ‘Radiation: All Around Us and How We Use It.’ The interdisciplinary topics for the core class will vary from year to year and detailed schedule can be found on the McMaster Intersession website.
