Inspired in part by the interdisciplinary classes we have seen at other independent schools, and in part by the successes of our very best January Term courses, University High School is piloting two corequisite courses in the 2017-18 school year.
The goal is to break down the traditional barriers of academic subjects in order to reach a deeper understanding of two essential topics, the African-American experience in the United States (Race in America) and the intersection of words and pictures in the stories we tell (Graphic Novels).
Corequisite courses meet for one semester during two consecutive class periods, and they each count for two credits. Graphic Novels (fall) will count for an English and an art credit. Race in America (spring) will count for an English and U.S. History credit.
