Course No. PTG21X  Credits: 3.0
Prerequisite(s) Intro to Painting: Painting History: 1828-Present

The focus of this course is the role of Painting in the digital age. Students will use varied media and subjects, traditional and non- traditional, to further develop analytical and expressive means in their painting and creative practices. Students are encouraged to draw from personal interests and from many disciplines to develop projects that will be presented to the class for group critiques. Through slide presentations, gallery visits museum shows, and readings, information will be presented relating to the current art scene in order to further the student’s personal vision, help clarify directions, and explore a variety of formal, conceptual, and technical approaches to painting and image-making. Projects will address, among others, ideas and forms of light and space, color relationships, means and meanings of representation, text and texture, and gender, social and political issues. This course is open to all students with the prerequisite of Intro to Painting or with the permission of the instructor.

Topics in 20th-Century US History

Course No. HCS390X  Credits: 3.0

As the title suggests, this is an entry-level survey course in modern American history, covering the period roughly from the end of Reconstruction to the late 20th century. In this course we will follow a chronological continuum. We will emphasize political, economic, cultural and social history. We will look at those in positions of power and those groups in society trying to acquire rights and power. In 15 weeks, we will be progressing from the period of steam engines and the American frontier to rock ‘n’ roll and the Apollo moon landing — a vast amount of material. The choice of what to include and what to leave out is entirely subjective, and class feedback on those decisions is encouraged. Issues of international importance will be discussed, in some cases in depth, but the main emphasis of the course will be on the domestic transformation.

Topics in Environmental Science

Course No. SNS390X  Credits: 3.0

This course explores a broad range of topics that come under the heading of Environmental Science. It will focus on humans and the environment, taking in populations and health, earth resources, water management, food and hunger, biodiversity and sustainable living systems. Applications of these topics to various problems in design such as the design of sustainable cities will be emphasized through term research projects. Fulfills Social or Natural Science liberal arts distribution elective. No prerequisites.
