Academic Program

Students may take one GLACE course (with another UMBS course) or both GLACE courses for a total of six credits.  U-M Transfer Bridges to the Humanities (TB2H) students must enroll in both GLACE courses.  The classes each approach in a different way the problems of place and experiential learning, with topics and activities ranging from studying the interconnections between life, land, and waterways in Michigan and practicing the basics of ethnographic fieldwork to crafting prose writings about self and space and exploring the philosophical basis for our personal self-location in body and spirit.

GLACE courses are graded. The academic program requires completion of each course's reading list and assignments, as well as consistent participation in classes and journal groups. GLACE students come from a variety of educational and personal backgrounds and interests to form a learning environment in which students actively learn both with and from each other.
