Spring 2022 Courses

This is a preliminary list of available courses for Spring 2022. The schedule is still being set, and the course listing will be updated as more information becomes available. 

To enroll in Spring courses, you'll work with an advisor to help you choose the courses that best fit your academic goals.

Please pay attention to the online delivery method when choosing the course that you are interested in taking:

Asynchronous classes let students complete their work on their own time. Students are given a timeframe during which they need to connect to their class. The good news is that in asynchronous courses, you could hit the books no matter what hour of day (or night). When you look at the schedule of classes, asynchronous courses won't show a day or time.

Synchronous classes occur in real time and have set schedules with students and instructors online at the same time. You will be expected to be present and participate during designated lectures, discussion and presentation hours. When you look at the schedule of classes, synchronous courses will show specific days and time.

Great Texts GTX 1301 Introduction to Great Texts “Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story?” Rethinking Myth and Wisdom
This course explores the relationship between myth, storytelling, and practical wisdom. Do stories help us better understand how to live the good life? What is the role of creativity and the arts in shaping culture? How do storytelling and creative writing play a critical role in sharing with posterity the lessons we, and others before us, have learned about the human condition? Beginning with Plato’s “Myth of Atlantis” in the Timaeus and culminating in a study of the new Broadway classic, Hamilton: An American Musical, we journey through myths selected from Ovid’s Metamorphoses and the Moralized Ovid (a medieval adaptation and commentary on Ovid’s mythology). Readings also include works by C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Maya Angelou, and Helen Edmunson.
