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-295: Creator Studio

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.
