Instructor Blair Simmons
Course IMNY-UT.99
Units 0
Prerequisites none

All incoming IMA students will be required to participate and register in IMA Cohort.

This course provides incoming IMA students with an opportunity to consider the IMA program and their role within it. This zero-credit course is based around in-class activities, discussions, viewings, texts, and lectures that begin from students’ varying perspectives and ultimately provide a grounding within the tenets of the IMA program. 

IMA is an interdisciplinary program that draws students from across the United States and around the world. This course functions as an opportunity for students to consider the knowledge that they already have, the contexts in which that knowledge is situated, and how students can relate to and work with classmates who come from their own diverse contexts and backgrounds. 

Students will also be guided through discussions, viewings, and visits from other members of the university. Because this is a zero-credit course and there are no assignments outside of class, student participation and engagement in these activities is especially important.
