HumanitiesX fellows are supported for the academic year, so that they may co-design an interdisciplinary, project-based course in the humanities for delivery in the spring quarter. HumanitiesX courses may be taught at any level outside of the first-year program, including as special topics courses, Honors Program courses, or graduate courses. All HumanitiesX courses at the undergraduate level count for Experiential Learning (EL) credit. They may be listed in one unit or cross-listed between units.
Interested faculty and community partners should review the
HumanitiesX model and consult with the initiative's Faculty Director,
Professor Lisa Dush, prior to submitting an application.
HumanitiesX applications are submitted by a team of three: two faculty members in DePaul's College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and a community partner.
EligibilityFull-time faculty in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences are eligible to apply to be a Faculty Fellow. At least one of the two faculty on the team must hold a tenure-line appointment, and faculty will typically be from different academic units.
