HIS 105-66 : Western Tradition 2
This is actually a course I’m taking right now. In this class you can expect to learn about European and American history. Some historical periods we’ve covered in class were the Reformation, the Glorious Revolution, the Enlightenment, the Great Awakening, and the American Revolution. We’re covering the French Revolution now. I find it to be an interesting and enlightening course and you take it over the winter if you’d like.

If you need to fulfill a humanities credit, this course is an option for you. Students will study film from the 1920’s to present day. Analyzing how women have been depicted in film, and how that depiction has changed over time. Sounds interesting!
MUS 203-66 : History of Rock and Roll: Blues & Beyond
When I read this course title I hear the guitar part to “Carry on My Wayward Son” by Kansas. I know it’s way before my time, but Rock Band featured it their video game! This course sound engaging and delightful. It fulfills a humanities credit as well.
