          GFR/GER:Meets   SS.   GDR:Meets  S.   This
          seminar   will  explore  the  relationship

          developmental  psychology.  Readings  will

          The Prince, Mannheim's Idology and Utopia,
          and Wendell Berry'sCitizenship Papers. The
          course  will combine the academic rigor of
          an  honors seminar with an emphasis on the
          writing  and communication skills that are
          essential    to    leadership,   including
          exposition,   argumentation,  debate,  and
          public   presentation.  In  addition,  the
          course  will  offer practical  training in
          leadership    so    that    students   may
          competently  consider the  implications of
          assuming  leadership roles at  UMBC and in
          their future careers.

HONR 300C General Honors Seminar The Anti-Hero in                 3 credits
          European and American Literature                  

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  Early  in the
          nineteenth  century, many European writers
          pointed out what they perceived as serious
          faults  with the "modern  world,"; a world
          that  they  and their  characters rejected
          because    they   found   it   crass   and
          dehumanizing.   These   writers-and  their
          characters-felt  isolated, angry,  and, at
          the   same  time,  jealous  of  those  who
          mindlessly  accepted  and  unquestioningly
          followed  the conventional values of their
          society.  Thus Existentialism was born and
          continues  today.  This course  will trace
          the   development   of  the  anti-hero  in
          European  and  American  fiction.  We will
          read   and   discuss   works   by   Gogol,
          Dostoevski,    Tolstoi,    Kafka,   Camus,
          Malamus, and others.
