LACR 225 - SIFT: Observing Humans

3 credits
The Scientific Inquiry Foundation Track (SIFT) serves as a foundation for future studies in the natural and social sciences and in mathematics and for life-long learning. Scholarship in these scientific disciplines have influenced our culture in significant ways - both directly as a result of ongoing research and indirectly as new scientific ideas and theories are developed and applied within the context of important issues and concerns in the larger society. This course presents several different social science frameworks and seeks to uncover what can be learned about human behavior by people watching. Students will choose places for brief weekly observation and use their own art skills to document what they see.

Enrollment in BS, BFA, or BM degree program required. Successful completion of LACR*009 where required as a, result of English placement exam. Successful completion of LACR*100 where required as a, result of English placement exam.
