Succeeding in a top-tier research university requires students not only to understand and distill complex material, but also to communicate your insights effectively in the classroom. This course is designed to familiarize you with a student-centered U.S. classroom culture and with the expectations and challenges you will likely encounter during your academic career in a top-tier American university. Focused activities will allow students to hone their research and communication skills, which will be transferable to many contexts in college and future careers.
Throughout this course, you will take steps to become a confident communicator, active reader, effective note-taker, avid researcher and thoughtful member of your classroom and work communities. You will have the opportunity to focus on and explore the most important topics and questions in your proposed future major. It is expected that, as a participant in this course, you are eager to discover and share your academic passion and you are motivated to prepare for your future professional pursuits.
While students may enroll in this course as a stand-alone two-week pre-college experience, we encourage students to enroll in this course as the first part of the four-week immersive International Scholars Institute. After completing this communications course, you will go on to enroll in a Session C course that best suits your interests, where you may put into practice the skills you have learned during Session B. All the while, you will live and socialize with the other pre-college students in the Emory residence halls who come together from around the United States and the world.
