PHIL-1024-60 Searching for Reality

What exists, and how can we know it? Metaphysics and epistemology are the two branches of philosophy devoted to asking these questions, and this course is a historical examination of these two areas in Western philosophy. Each historical era will be viewed through the lens of a guiding question that frames metaphysical and epistemological investigation. Along the way, we will discuss classical philosophical issues such as free will, the existence of God, the nature of consciousness, and the limits of science. 

INDS-1049-60 Experimental Music 

This course introduces students to the key composers and artists in experimental music from the early 20th century to the present and provides an overview of the central movements in experimental music. Students analyze and evaluate a broad variety of musical compositions and written sources.

PSYC-1078-60 Digging up Death

The intention of this course is to broaden your knowledge of death by examining topics including: historical/cultural practices, near death experiences, suicide, the undead, and violent death and by calling on experiences, insights and knowledge from many perspectives.

SOSC-1012-60 Discovering the Social Sciences (Course Full) 

This course connects the exciting world of social science to our everyday experiences. By highlighting discipline-specific tools and concepts used by anthropologists, psychologists, and sociologists, students gain insight into how people function and how relationships develop between individuals, society, and the global world. Discussions focus on current and controversial topics that deal with individual, social, and global concerns, allowing us to understand the origins and consequences for some of life's most pressing issues. This interdisciplinary approach leads to a better understanding of social science and gives students the foundation for future learning in all areas of study.
