Above all, UNSW’s General Education Program presents students with interesting, challenging and enjoyable opportunities to pursue their own intellectual curiosity. The following objectives were approved by the Council of the University of NSW in December 1994. 1. To provide a learning environment in which students acquire, develop, and deploy skills of rational thought and critical analysis. 2. To enable students to evaluate arguments and information. 3. To empower students to systematically challenge received traditions of knowledge, beliefs and values. 4. To enable students to acquire skills and competencies, including written and spoken communication skills. 5. To ensure that students examine the purposes and consequences of their education and experience at University, and to foster acceptance of professional and ethical action and the social responsibility of graduates. 6. To foster among students the competence and the confidence to contribute creatively and responsibly to the development of their society. 7. To provide structured opportunities for students from disparate disciplines to interact co-operatively within a learning situation. 8. To provide opportunities for students to explore discipline and paradigm bases other than those of their professional or major disciplinary specialisation through non-specialist subjects offered in those other areas. 9. To provide an environment in which students are able to experience the benefits of moving beyond the knowledge boundaries of a single discipline and explore cross and interdisciplinary connections. 10. To provide a learning environment and teaching methodology in which students can bring the approaches of a number of disciplines to bear on a complex problem or issue. Course Structure The course is offered as an online course only. All course material is available via VISTA, and all assessment submissions are required to be submitted online.
