Foundations - Health/Life Sciences RAP Fall 2013
There are two basic categories of RAPs at UMass Amherst:
Topic RAPs and
This RAP is like a cross between the two:
Like Topic RAPs, this RAP is intended to bring together students who have a common interest - in this case 'Health Sciences'.
Like Foundations RAPs, this RAP is an opportunity for students to enroll in a class with people they are living with.
Different than Topic RAPs, this RAP does NOT include a seminar class.
Foundations - Health/Life Sciences RAPs offers students a choice between the "Medical Ethics" class or "My Body, My Health" class.
This RAP is available in three locations, two in the Southwest area of campus, and one in the Orchard Hill area.
This RAP is open to students in any major or undeclared.
When you join this RAP you will...
Enroll in one General Education class - either a small section of a lecture OR seats in a class taught on the Main Campus with a discussion section dedicated to students in the RAP (the discussion section may be on the main campus or in the residential area)
Share your living-and-learning experience with a community of students with similar interests
Have the option to choose a section of College Writing 112 in the residential area either Fall or Spring semester (if interested and as available).
Foundations RAPs do not include a RAP seminar.
