CEIS Podcast Series Continues

CEIS logo

Now in its third season, CEIS Podcast Series continues with a focus on two Interdisciplinary General Education (IGE) courses that explore the technological history of the United States and issues of gender in horror films. Cal Poly Pomona students Maria Armayin, Ileana Montes and Trejon Hollins are joined by lecturer Rosanne Welch in the session.

“I am often asked what makes IGE so special,” said Dean Jeff Passe. “Anyone listening to this podcast will soon come to realize that IGE courses can make academic learning come alive in unusual ways.”

Prior to the winter break, CEIS released four video podcasts featuring students, faculty and alumni from CPP:
