Transcript Taking Pride Honors College Professor Andrew Hass encourage* his students to lool beyond their selec tive majors and into the larger world of philosophy and religion Humanities Guiding Students I Andrew Hass works side by side with his students everyday to motivate them to excel in their studies. Dr. Andrew Hass began teaching at the University of Houston in August of 1998. He is a member in the Human Situation Course Team, a requisite for students in the Honors College. The courses are taught with an "intradisciplinary" approach, meaning the students are not focusing only on their major courses, but are receiving knowledge about philosophy, religion, and several other subjects, he said that this type of learning "grounds the students for humanities." He said he believes "most educators groom students to focus on one career path, and the original intention in the medieval university was to make students wordly wise then concentrate on one subject. Dr. Hass teaches religion with an emphasis on Christian and Hebrew scripture and philosophy. He also teaches an upper-level course he created called Text and Interpretation, which involves reading colloquium, the "meaning of life," how one reads and what is involved. Originally from Vancouver, he earned a Bachelor's degree from the University of British Columbia; he attended the University of Glasgow in Scotland and has earned a Masters in Theology and a PhD. in literature and religion. Growing up in Canada, the middle child of three, Hass was influenced by his European Protestant background. Today, Hass's only family in the United States consists of his beautiful Canadian wife. His plans for the future include a focus on religion and film interpretations, and his pride and joy, the Honors Summer College, the Fourth Annual International Summer School in which several students embark on touring many European countries and grasping as much as possible about religion and philosophy from different perspectives. Dr. Hass is most definitely a professor who desires to give students a well-rounded education because as he believes, our possibilities are endless, and tomorrow we may decide to take on a whole new life or career. He said he thinks "many people today are not sticking with the careers they sought after,' therefore people should be prepared for whatever comes from day one. • by Deann Dunkins Hot topics Hass answers questions from the audience about religion and philosophy.
