Discovery Courses

Engaging Humanities Discovery courses highlight what the humanities have to offer to some of today’s most important questions. See course descriptions for current Discovery courses.

Engaging Humanities Discovery Courses are taught by two faculty members and two predoctoral fellows, advanced graduate students with a passion for teaching and learning.

All Discovery Courses count toward UC Santa Barbara’s General Education Writing Requirement, one of the special subject area requirements that must be fulfilled for graduation credit.

Note that students are required to take six Writing Requirement (WR) courses, so even if you’ve received WR credit from an Engaging Humanities Learning Community, the WR credit from a Discovery Course will still be useful.
