Summer Quest Courses
Students will have the opportunity to complete either QS212 or QS311 and its linked course over the summer.
Summer I Session
QS311: Global Culture and Community
Carolyn Doolittle | 6-9 PM TWR
Popular culture influences every aspect of our daily lives. We listen to popular music, read magazines and newspapers, watch television, and go to the movies. Images portrayed in these media influence our perspectives of people, places, and cultures. The images of teachers and classrooms through popular media often affect the way the public conceptualizes what educational systems are. Stereotypes and biases about teachers and educational systems abound in movies, television, contemporary music, and even “news” reports. Critically looking at the medias' portrayal of teachers and schools can be a considerably effective exercise in understanding our own attitudes about educational systems. This course allows the learner to have a focused opportunity to view films and other forms of media which portray teachers and schools in both negative and positive ways. This exercise not only opens a dialogue about educational systems, but also encourages us to examine our conscious and unconscious attitudes about the work of educators and educational systems.
Students who enroll in this course to fulfill Quest requirements must co-enroll in MU320 as the linked course. This course will be offered: Full summer (online) and Summer II sessions by Professor Trilla Lyerla.
Summer II Session
QS212: The Dark Side of Close Relationships
Kim Schaefer | 12-2:30 TWR
Friendships and romantic relationships can bring us a great deal of happiness. Unfortunately, they can also be areas of frustration and pain. Negotiating the beginning of a relationship raises uncertainty. Maintaining close relationships requires a lot of hard work and time. Terminating a relationship often involves hurt feelings. In this course, we identify some of the challenges that people face in their relationships. In addition to experiences that are often characterized as “dark,” such as conflict, turmoil, deception, and cheating, we will also discuss several events that are less “dark” but are challenging to negotiate. We also explore the ways in which communication influences and sometimes resolves conflict within relationships.
Students who enroll in this course to fulfill Quest requirements must co-enroll in EN226, Introduction to Dramatic Literature, as the linked course. This course will be taught MTWR from 9-11 by Professor Tamara Slankard.
