Profile of a FWIS: Word Magic

FWIS 171: Word Magic

An interview with Katerina Belik, Instructor

What do you think is interesting/distinctive about this FWIS course?
The course transforms regular students into Word Magicians…Many people are unaware how much power is hidden in language. Word Magic introduces students to the subject of psycholinguistics and its intriguing topics: relationship of language and thought, functions of language in politics and psycho-therapy.

What, specifically, are you excited about teaching in your FWIS this semester?
We have a fun video project this semester.

What advice do you have for first-year students (about FWIS or their first semester in general)?
Manage your time, so you could explore new things, embrace and share new ideas, make new friends, and fully enjoy your new life.
