SHAPE Courses

The faculty steering committee, appointed by the Chancellor, and including both the Chancellor and Provost as members, selected eleven unique courses combining the Science and Engineering disciplines with the Humanities and Arts with the first course taught in Fall Quarter 2020.

The courses are taught as First-Year Seminars and as University Honors Program courses. The Mondavi Center assists the faculty in identifying a performing artist to connect to the course topic. Each selected artist is actively engaged with the students through residency activities throughout the quarter. Each individual SHAPE course culminates with a public performance at the Mondavi Center, bringing student learning opportunities to a diverse audience.

The courses are housed in a diverse range of departments across all four Colleges and the School of Veterinary Medicine.
