NEW INFORMATION:  Please note that beginning in Fall 2016, students cannot earn credit for more than one MODR course.  If you have already completed a MODR course, you cannot take another for credit.

All Modes of Reasoning courses count toward the general education requirement. General education courses do not fulfill elective or major requirements.

A student may take only one Modes course for credit. Like all general education courses, Modes seeks to introduce students to university culture, interdisciplinary modes of inquiry, and critical skills.

Modes, however, emphasizes additional critical reasoning skills. The skills taught in each Modes course can be divided into three major areas:

  • critical thinking (analyzing and criticizing arguments toward the end of figuring out what makes the most sense to believe or to do within a given context)
  • critical reading (analyzing texts with the goal of understanding and summarizing them and determining their strengths and weaknesses) and
  • critical writing (constructing essays which clearly and concisely explain and support a position or point of view).

Practice and mentoring of skills is emphasized through the use of numerous examples analyzed both in class and in homework and assignments. These skills are applied to texts and issues on a variety of topics and in a variety of fields, depending upon the emphasis of the particular modes of reasoning course.
