INTG 205: Transfer Seminar

This 2-credit course will be taken by transfer students. It functions as both an introduction to their general education experience at a Catholic, Benedictine college and meets the Information Literacy 1 and Metacognition 1 learning goals. This course will serve in place of INTG 105 for transfer students for their graduation requirement. The topics of these courses are diverse and intended to be taught by faculty from across all divisions. The course will also satisfy the learning objectives of the Benedictine Raven.

Learning Outcomes

Information Literacy 1

Students demonstrate the ability to access appropriate information through basic search strategies.  They cite sources appropriately and articulate the value of accurate citations.  Their papers are free of plagiarism.

Metacognition 1

Students begin to identify their intellectual abilities and dispositions.  They recognize that there are different problem-solving processes and learning strategies.

Benedictine Raven

Students develop an awareness of a Benedictine perspective (practices, values, and heritage) using texts or experiences inside or outside the classroom and reflect on how a Benedictine perspective might apply to questions in contemporary life.



Grading type

Please note:

A.  The committee understands that some courses may still be in development. Prompts that ask for examples of assignments seek information about the spirit of what students will do and instructors are not bound to the specific details (e.g. writing prompts) provided.

B.  The committee includes faculty from a variety of disciplines. Please remember to briefly explain disciplinary terms, contexts, and/or texts to allow all the members of the committee to best understand how your responses address the question.

C.  As you are answering these questions, please keep in mind that students will need to produce work to assess their fulfillment of the related learning outcomes if applicable.
