Trauma in History, Art & Religion

CGS HU 425 (4 credits)

Today, it seems that trauma is everywhere. It haunts soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. It afflicts the survivors of 9/11 and witnesses to the Boston Marathon bombings. It colors the lives of victims in the rape epidemic still unfolding on college campuses. It shapes the way we talk about race after the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice. It is a lens through which we look at genocides past and present. And it provides new ways to read literature, view art, and watch television and film. This course is a co-taught, interdisciplinary seminar that explores the many ways that psychological trauma manifests itself in the contemporary world. Students will use tools and techniques borrowed from a variety of fields, among them psychology, social work, literary criticism, theology, history, sociology, and gender studies. Carries humanities divisional credit in CAS.

Biology I

CGS NS 201 (4 credits)

Science as a way of knowing and understanding our contemporary world is the most profound and powerful intellectual and practical tool the human species has developed. Science has allowed us to understand our physical place in the universe as well as our origin as a species on Earth. Science in our globalized modern world can seem increasingly complex, but most scientific understandings are based on relatively few conceptual paradigms or accepted ideas. Many of these major paradigms will be covered in this course, including the origin of life, the molecular and cellular theories of life, human origins, genetics, evolutionary theory and biodiversity. The underlying pedagogy of the course is to examine what we know about an accepted paradigm, how we know these scientific facts and theories, and what are the contemporary applications of the accepted paradigms. The course also provides the primary scientific tools required to explore scientific, ethical and sociological concerns that arise from our understanding of the origin, evolution and diversity of life including that of our own species. Four credit hours total: two hours lecture; two hours lab.

Human Ecology/Global Ecology

CGS NS 202 (4 credits)

What is the fate of the biosphere and our species? Can humans reconcile economic and technological growth with ecological sustainability? This course examines the impact of one species, Homo sapiens, on the ecosystems of the biosphere, seeking answers to these broad questions. This course includes an investigation of the physical forces that shape global climates and ultimately constrain life on Earth. An examination of the interrelationships between the abiotic and biotic components in ecosystems leads to an investigation of the forces that influence biological diversity. The integrative study of population biology culminates in an investigation of the population dynamics of our own species and the implications the exponential growth of the human population may have on global resources and the biosphere. The foundation in general ecology and human population dynamics allows a serious consideration of the technological impact of humans on the delicately balanced ecosystems of Earth. The interrelationship between science and society is also explored. Four credit hours total: two hours lecture; two hours lab.

Rhetorical Practices from the Ancient World to Enlightenment

CGS RH 103 (4 credits)

This course offers instruction in writing, critical reading and research. It focuses on four themes taken from the four units that comprise the semester's curriculum ("The Birth of 'God': The Advent of Monotheism"; "The Development of Democracy and the Democratic Self"; "Rediscovering Nature and the Self: The Renaissance"; and "Reason to Revolution: The Enlightenment"). Readings and discussions relate these themes to current issues and problems in order to explore how the past has shaped the world of today. Three papers invite students to research and write about these relationships. Shorter informal writing assignments allow students to integrate the texts and lectures across the curriculum with learning experiences outside the classroom. The course makes extensive use of the university library and online resources to teach research skills. Finally, students learn core academic writing skills, including argumentation and the evaluation, integration, and documentation of sources. [Open only to students admitted to the CGS January Program]One lecture, two discussions, additional hours with the professor focused on individual writing instruction.[4 cr.]

How Societies Work: An Introduction to the Social Sciences

CGS SS 101 (4 credits)

CGS SS 101 -- How Societies Work: An Introduction to the Social Sciences This course introduces students to the methods of inquiry and principal concepts of the social sciences--a handful of disciplines that includes anthropology, sociology, social psychology, economics, political science, and history. Through the analysis of contemporary society and cross-cultural studies, students will examine the importance of culture, the economy, and power and authority, and learn how these structures interconnect with each other to give rise to distinctive patterns of human thought and behavior. Consideration is given to the categories of race, class, and gender, both as markers of identity and bases for systems of social inequality. The course emphasizes the classical sociological theories of Durkheim, Marx, and Weber and instructs students on how to use these theories to critically evaluate social structures and historical change. One lecture, two discussions, and one additional contact hour as assigned.[ 4 cr.]

Modernization: Politics, Economics, and Culture

CGS SS 102 (4 credits)

CGS SS 102 -- Modernization: Politics, Economics, and Culture This course examines the process of modernization in the West. The historical phenomena of industrialization, the rise of liberal democracy, nationalism, imperialism, and globalization -- all associated with modernization as it took place in Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries -- are examined both in their historical context and through the lens of theories of social change. Through an examination of historical case studies, students will evaluate the impact of these phenomena on the life, institutions, and ways of thinking in the West. Students will also consider the historical legacy of the West's modernization for contemporary global issues such as terrorism and the challenges of development in non-Western societies. One lecture, two discussions, and one additional contact hour as assigned.[4 cr.]
