Senior Seminars At St. Mary's C. Prove Mastery In Majors
St. Mary's City, Maryland -- Robin Bates, who teaches English at St. Mary's College of Maryland, took 25 seniors on a journey of self-discovery inside his classroom this past semester.
His seminar introduced the seniors -- all English majors -- to literary theory. But it also gave them a chance to explore questions about themselves that most hadn't considered in an academic way before. Questions like: What attracted you to literature? Why are you drawn to some works and not others?
