These seminars are designed to introduce students to the world of scholarship through intensive, collaborative investigations of innovative topics. Excitement and challenge characterize these courses as students are invited to be co-inquirers into topics and problems that have impassioned their professors. All first-year students take these seminars during their first semester at Concordia.
Inquiry Seminars are devoted to helping students develop critical thinking skills and fostering a lifelong love of learning. These writing-intensive courses emphasize the foundational and transferable skills of data collection, assumption analysis, thesis construction, and argument development.
