Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The University of Illinois has instituted General Education Requirements for all undergraduate students. Students must take classes in quantitative methods, writing and composition, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and cultural studies. Agricultural Engineering had no courses certified to meet any of the general education guidelines. Humanity in the Food Web was developed to satisfy a humanities requirement and also serve as a writing intensive course. Student response has been positive and student numbers are on the rise.
