This course surveys Roman history through Rome’s origins as a Latin village to its emergence as the head of an Empire. Emphasis will be placed on what it meant to be a Roman citizen, a citizen soldier, a wife/husband, a slave, and the roles of different social groups and genders within Roman society. Students will consider urban life in Roman cities, as well as the personalities and values of the Romans and how these led to Rome’s political, social, military, and economic successes and failures.

NTSS 303-01 “Wild Injustice: Global Environmental Citizenship,” Dr. Balmer, TR 1330-1445 (CRN 14481)
Since the mid-18th century the human population has grown 10-fold to more than 7 billion. Human infrastructure, agriculture, and industrialization have transformed more than half of the planet’s land surface, polluted the world’s oceans, altered the Earth’s atmosphere and climate, and sparked what some are calling Earth’s sixth mass extinction. Many scientists believe humans now rival, or in some cases, exceed the forces of nature, and will push the planet beyond critical tipping points by the end of the century. In this interdisciplinary course exploring Earth’s future we’ll discuss the driving forces and impacts of global ecological changes from sociological and scientific perspectives, and our personal responsibility as ‘environmental citizens’ to prevent them. We’ll examine what constitutes responsible environmental action and develop skills for participating effectively, individually and collectively, as global citizens to protect our only home: planet Earth.

NTSS 303-02 Biology, Environment & Law, Dr. James Berry, TR, 1100-1215 James Berry (CRN 14952) 
This course will explore the ways that the legal system protects and regulates biological systems in the environment. We will examine the profound influence that environmental laws have on species, ecosystems, and landscapes, and the effects of the regulation of air, water, and land in maintaining biodiversity, sustainability, and ecosystem health.


Citizenship Strand Course Descriptions Fall 2020:

Vampires. Zombies. Werewolves. Serial Killers. Ghouls. Film and literature are filled with examples of strange creatures and entities that infiltrate every culture and society to both frighten and attract. This class will read and watch a selection of horror literature and film to answer the following questions: Where do these monsters come from? How do different cultures and time periods define monsters? How do humans and monsters interact? What happens when these monsters inhabit the fringes of society or walk among humans? What makes some monsters frightening, and what makes others attractive? What happens when monsters move from page to screen? And finally, how do monsters help us define what it means to be human?
