Announcing Fall 2019 Courses!
The Red House is offering over 20 courses in Fall 2019! We will be offering Bridge Courses for Seniors in the FALL for the first time ever, and are also launching a second Core Pathway on the theme of Humanity and Technology
Red House Courses
UNXD-190 : Personal Narrative and Professional Discernment
This course for sophomores engages students first in self-reflection and exploration. By developing and articulating self-knowledge students can create a narrative related to their values, skills, interests, and personality. Once this narrative is formed, students learn how to share their story verbally, in writing, and how this connects to vocational options and career-specific strategies such as writing resumes, interviewing, and networking. This course allows students to think critically about how identity connects with life during and after Georgetown in a way that will equip them for transitions as a student, a young alumnus, and beyond.
UNXD-296: Content and Entrepreneurship: Book Writing
Taught by Prof. Eric Koester, this course will enable students to design and develop a book manuscript or podcast season, with a focus on examining a topic or topics where a student has a long-term interest or passion. Professor Koester’s “Creator Pedagogy” allows you to openly demonstrates your purpose/passions to enhance your credibility in a field, industry or area. The course is a hands-on experiential style.
SOCI-305: Gentrification Studio
This three-credit course is a studio-based course designed for students to collaboratively build projects that address issues of gentrification in Washington, DC.
