          GEP:N/A.  GFR:Meets SS.  This seminar will
          explore     the    relationship    between
          leadership  and responsibility through the
          lens     of     cognitive    developmental
          psychology.  Readings will include Perry's
          Forms    of   Intellectual   and   Ethical
          Development and Kohlberg's Essays on Moral
          Development:   The   Philosophy  of  Moral
          Development.  Additional readings  will be
          drawn  from  important works  in political
          science,    philosophy,   sociology,   and
          contemporary   critical   thought,such  as
          Plato's  Republic, Rousseau's Discourse on
          the  Origin  of  Inequality, Machiavelli's
          The Prince, Mannheim's Idology and Utopia,
          and  Wendell  Berry's  Citizenship 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.
