TENTATIVE HONORS COURSES, SPRING 2008 Accounting 202 Principles of Accounting SOPHOMORE STANDING AND ABOVE: The accounting cycle from the analysis of business transactions through the preparation of financial statements, basic theory and practice with respect to accounting for assets and equities. A challenging special project will be assigned to the students in this class. Art 101/Art 498 Appreciation of Visual Arts Add on- must be taken concurrently Description: This honors workshop will examine the history of art within the public sphere. There will be an emphasis on art, monuments, and museums in America from the late nineteenth to the twenty-first century. In the democratic “melting pot” that constitutes America, the wide diversity of viewpoints expressed by artists, who work within a system that constitutionally guarantees freedom of expression, leads as often to conflict as to mutual understanding. The powerful medium of art can foster empathy and understanding, heal, unify, amuse, instruct, alert, rally, accuse, indict, arouse, incite, coerce, frighten, and manipulate humanity. Who controls art, and ultimately its meaning —governments, individual or groups of patrons, galleries or museums, artists, or audience? What internal and external structures of power are at work in the making, displaying and understanding of art? In this class critical analysis of works of art and study of the social climate of when they were produced and of the present, where we interact with them, may not lead to a consensus of meaning either pro or con but will hopefully lead to a deeper and more critical understanding of art and its various roles within societies. Some subjects we will explore include public monuments of Ancient and Renaissance Rome, the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial, the World War II Memorial and the history of the monuments and green space of the National Mall, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and National Museum of the American Indian, and the rebuilding plans for the space of the World Trade Center in New York City. Assignments will include readings, response papers, a reflective journal, and a final group project. Requirements: an open mind, intellectual curiosity, willingness to work hard individually and as a cohesive unit, and active, engaged class participation. Potentially controversial subject matter; politics, religion, and sexuality, will be addressed in this class. Additional requirement: be prepared for an all-day field trip to Washington D.C. Bio 122 (for freshman only) Human Sexuality Presentations by the instructor and guest lecturers cover the history of the study of human sexuality; the stages of sexual development; reproductive physiology, childbirth and pregnancy; sexual dysfunction and enhancement; sexually transmitted diseases; and
