Law & Humanities Course Thread
Courses Threads allow Berkeley undergraduates to explore intellectual themes connecting courses across departments and disciplines. Without creating new majors or minors, Course Threads highlight connections among existing courses and help students develop a breadth and depth of knowledge in particular topics. Course Threads have been developed by the Townsend Center for the Humanities and are sponsored by several departments on campus. The Rhetoric department sponsors the Law & Humanities Course Thread.
To complete a Course Thread, students simply enroll in at least three courses tagged in the course catalog as part of a particular Course Thread, such as Human Rights, Human-Centered Design, Sciences & Society, Law & Humanities, Carceral Geographies: Beyond the Prison, and more.
Students may then participate in an RRR week Course Threads Symposium at the Townsend Center's Geballe Room (220 Stephens Hall) and give a ten-minute presentation about their experience with their Course Thread's theme to receive a Certificate of Completion. (Students may receive only one certificate per semester.)
