University Studies Tutorial

Prerequisite(s): Permission of Arts Studies department head.

Corequisite(s): At least one course 100-level or above.

This tutorial builds intellectual modes of inquiry needed for university success. In small tutorial working groups, students will practice a variety of learning, reading, conceptualizing, planning, and text deconstructing strategies that they can use to comprehend assignment expectations and develop a systematic approach to working through learning materials for courses they are registered in.

Note: Credit for the tutorial cannot be used towards credit in a program and will result in additional credits beyond credential requirements.
