Ball-Phillips from the EAA winter 2015 issue (vol. 20, no. 3). KNW is the acronym for Ways of Knowing courses offered through SMU. Ways of Knowing courses cut across disciplines, exploring how natural scientists, social scientists, humanists, artists, engineers, and professionals in business and education go about addressing important issues. The courses develop students’ understanding of the multiple approaches whereby different disciplines define, acquire, and create knowledge, including the ethical considerations involved.
