INTD 101 - FIRST YEAR SEMINAR
Designed for first-time, full-time, first-year students. First Year Seminar (FYS) provides a comprehensive introduction to college-level learning. Seminar courses are developed around an academic theme or topic that is based on one of Ramapo College's academic pillars. First-Year students will have the opportunity to select a seminar that best suits their interests while learning about Ramapo's academic foundation. The First-Year Seminar course helps students in their transition from high school to college life both in and out of the classroom. The common learning outcomes of FYS are: critical and creative thinking, college-level writing, oral communication, information literacy, and technological competency. FYS classes are small to emphasize open discussion and experiential learning within the theme of the seminar course. Peer facilitators play an essential role in each FYS class ensuring that first-year students have guidance from a more experienced student. FYS is also the home of the Ramapo Summer Reading Program; all first-year students read the same book and discuss and write about it in their seminars. FYS encourages new students to participate in a community of learners, to strengthen their critical thinking skills, and to communicate effectively both orally and in writing.

INTD 302 - INDIAN CULTURE AND SOCIETY
This course is an introduction to contemporary Indian life and culture. It provides a scaffold for the subsequent courses on sustainable development and social movements that comprise the India Study Abroad semester pgoram. The course will also serve as a springboard for many field study project ideas. Through a combination of readings, lectures, films, field study experiences, reflection journals, and assignments, students will gain foundational knowledge about contemporary India and its complex and often contradictory contexts. At the same time, the course will explore the ways in which contemporary India's strengths and weaknesses are rooted in its extensive, complicated history. Any course on Indian culture must be premised on both its contemporary image and the historical precedents that influence and impact India's current social, political, and economic realities. Through this course, students will explore the key facets of modern Indian life and culture -- social structures, economic issues, geographic constraints, and religious and philosophical traditions. By studying the political, social, cultural and religious history (from pre-colonial to post-colonial times) and the varied geography of the subcontinent, students will gain a framework for understanding Indian civilization and be able to relate this knowledge to the political, social and economic challenges in modern Indian society. Introduction to the local language, Kannada will be a key component of this course. While urban India is largely conversant in English, rural life is quite different, with most villagers speaking only their local or regional language. Students will be able to have more meaningful experiences in rural Karnataka by gaining some basic knowledge of conversational Kannada. There will be 5 formal hours of language instruction during the first course, followed by pracatice sessions on the Firefilies campus and through trips to local markets and villages.
