Interdisciplinary Honors Seminars

major minor electives graphicInterdisciplinary Honors Seminars are offered through the Honors Program. They are open to all New Brunswick/Piscataway Honors Program members in all class years, but are generally designed for first-year and second-year students. Faculty from throughout the New Brunswick campuses are invited to offer an Honors Seminar, an opportunity to think about complex problems and issues across disciplinary boundaries or outside of traditional disciplinary trajectories. For the faculty, the seminars are often a springboard for their own research or for course development. Through Honors Seminars, faculty also recruit promising undergraduates to join them on collaborative research projects. Honors Seminars have an enrollment of no more than fifteen students, and involve extensive written work and readings, discussion, independent work, and often include research as well as field work opportunities.  Interdisciplinary Seminars offered under 01:090:292, 01:090:293, 01:090:294, 01:090:295, 01:090:296, and 01:090:297 can be used to meet the SAS Core Curriculum goals in Writing and Communication [WCd].

Honors Sections

There are two kinds of Honors Courses offered through academic departments: honors sections of lower-level regular courses, generally taken by first-year and second-year students (for example, Honors Introduction to Microecomomics, Honors Nature of Politics, Honors Calculus), and upper-level courses designated by the department as Honors (in Fall 2008, such courses include Advanced Econometrics, Jewish Politics and Power, Advanced Studies in Law: Reforming the Criminal Justice System, and Infant and Child Development). Enrollment in these courses varies, but is generally between 25-40 students.

Richard D. Heffner Open Mind Lecture

The Richard D. Heffner Open Mind Lecture Series

In keeping with Professor Heffner’s lifelong concerns, the lecture series aims to identify how our sense of what it means to be human has been molded by history, politics, culture, and print, electronic, and cybernetic media. Richard Heffner sought “meaningful insights” into the values that shape contemporary society, through connections between individual lives and great issues of morality, politics, justice, and scientific, humanistic, and artistic knowledge. He believed in an informed citizenry and active participation in public policy. The lecture series is devoted to the broad questions and challenges he raised through his work, and to particular issues such as free and fair speech, privacy concerns, media regulation and ownership, and the role of the public intellectual, scholar, and teacher. 

Richard D. Heffner (1925-2013) was University Professor of Communication and Public Policy at Rutgers, widely known for his courses, “Communication and Human Values” in the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program and “Mass Communication and the American Image” in the School of Communication and Information. 

He created and hosted the public television interview show The Open Mind, which began broadcasting in 1956, and which he continued to host for more than fifty years until his death. 

Richard Heffner was born in New York City in 1925 and received his B.A. and M.A. from Columbia University. It was as the host of The Open Mind that Heffner was known best, interviewing luminaries from Margaret Mead and Elie Wiesel, to Bill Moyers, and President Jimmy Carter. In 1963, after the assassination in Mississippi of civil rights leader Medgar Evers, he sat down with four civil rights leaders—Wyatt Tee Walker, James Farmer, Alan Morrison and Malcolm X—to discuss the state of race relations in America. Richard Heffner’s careful listening and probing questions were familiar to his students. His colleagues noted, “What he loved most was teaching. Great students were his inspiration and his joy.”

Summer Reading

Summer-readingEach year, our SAS Honors Program faculty, staff, and students work together to choose a book for new SASHP students to read over the summer. In July and August, new SASHP students begin a conversation about the Summer Reading Book with faculty, staff and students on our SASHP Summer Reading Blog. In the fall, we have a lecture, book-signing, and reception with the author of the book. The Summer Reading Book is also frequently the primary text for the fall SAS Honors Colloquium course.

Peer Mentor Program

The School of Arts and Sciences Honors Peer Mentor Program matches new SASHP students with current Student Mentors. Peer Mentors volunteer as resources who are available to share information about everything from requirements to professors, to inform students where to get advice, and to generally be familiar faces at SASHP and university events. Mentors range in class year from sophomores to seniors, and majors from Art History to Molecular Biology. When possible, students are matched on the basis of possible major, career plans, and extracurricular interests. The Mentors & Mentees determine the nature of the mentoring relationship: some meet only once or twice, and some form lasting friendships.

Beginning with the Peer Mentor & Mentee Summer Kick-off, the Peer Mentor Programming Board, made up of Peer Mentor leaders, organizes activities each month for Mentors & Mentees to attend together.  Visit our events page to learn about our upcoming events and add as on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/rutgers.peermentor.

Tutoring Program

tutoring

The School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program is pleased to offer free one-on-one tutoring to Rutgers students. Tutoring is available to all New Brunswick undergraduates during the fall and spring semesters. Through the SASHP Tutoring Program, students in the SAS Honors Program volunteer their time and knowledge to tutor Rutgers students needing help in a wide range of academic subjects.  The Tutoring Program tutors choose the subjects in which they can offer assistance and the time availabilities they wish to contribute to the program.


 

  All Rutgers-New Brunswick Students Can Use the One-on-One Tutoring Program!

Want to make the most of your tutoring experience? Follow these simple steps for academic success:

  1. Go to class, talk to your professor, and attend office hours to discuss any problems you might be having in the course. Tutoring is meant to supplement instruction—not take the place of your class.
  2. Arrive at your tutoring session on time and check-in with the Learning Center’s staff. If you must cancel your session after business hours or within 48 hours of your appointment, please contact the appropriate Learning Resource Center.
  3. Be positive! Learning new or challenging material can be stressful at first, but remaining positive allows you to fully concentrate on the task at hand.
  4. Take an active role in your learning. Come to the tutoring session prepared with your class notes, textbook, and any necessary tools (e.g., calculator, pencil, pen).
  5. Ask questions—lots of them! A tutor is not a lecturer, and collaborative environments are often the most successful ones for learning.

Please visit the RU Tutoring Scheduler to make an appointment. Students may use this service twice per week and schedule appointments up to two weeks in advance. Tutoring for Spring 2017 will begin the week of February 6. 

To make an appointment, log in with your NetID and password. Select your course and hit the "List View" button at the bottom. You will then see all available tutors, with times and locations. Select the one you want, confirm the time and course, and make the appointment. You will receive a confirmation email with the appointment details (if you do not receive an email, the appointment was not processed).

Students are also encouraged to visit any of the Rutgers Learning Centers on each campus for group tutoring, academic coaching and other assistance in their courses. Their locations are:

Specific course offerings may vary each semester, depending on each tutor’s availability. Commonly tutored subjects include, but are not limited to, the following:

SAS Honors Program students in good standing who have completed at least one semester at Rutgers are invited to apply to the Tutoring Program. Tutors choose which course or courses they tutor, and only need to be available 2 hours per week! The application is available online the first week of the Fall and Spring semesters. Students selected to participate in the Tutoring Program will be required to attend periodic trainings and meetings throughout the academic year.

The SAS Honors Faculty Mentor Program provides undergraduates with access to the university's best faculty on a one-on-one basis. All incoming students are asked if they would like to participate in the program, and may select a faculty member from the list below. Many students develop close relationships with their faculty mentors over the first and second years; mentors often invite students to meet for lunch, to participate in departmental seminars and lectures, or even to collaborate with them or with colleagues on research projects.

Global Experiences

Today's students are more international than those of any previous generation. Study Abroad programs remain the gold standard for pursuing academic studies in other countries, but many students are also interested in short, intensive experiences of one to three weeks. The SAS Honors Program is pleased to offer its students such global, interdisciplinary opportunities.
