The University of Michigan-Dearborn, and, in particular, the College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters aims to bring more awareness to interdisciplinary courses.
How does science relate to anthropology? Could African and African American studies relate to French? How could a business major pair with a social or behavioral science major? This is the premise of the Exploring CASL event – to get students to do just that – explore.
“I think we need to have an event like this because so many students are exposed to programs a year before they start college and they may forget or not understand what those majors are, or what a major could offer them in a career,” said Morgan Yuncker, CASL's outreach marketing coordinator, who is serving as the event coordinator.
Exploring CASL will have a casual, fair-like atmosphere during which students are able to converse with faculty, currents students, and alummi, and learn about the majors, minors, certificates, and programs available in the college. CASL advisors and staff from the START office will also be available to answer additional questions, or for appointment scheduling.
The event will be held Thursday, February 7 from 2:00-6:00 p.m. in Kochoff Hall, University Center. All faculty and staff are welcome to attend, and are encouraged to share information about this event with students across campus.
