Course Descriptions

BS443 Research Methods II ONLINE (3 cr)

This course is designed to help students further their exploration and investigation of the specialized theories and issues that began in research methods I. As such, the course affords the senior student with the opportunity for more extensive research and study in a selected area of behavioral sciences after receiving written approval of their capstone topic. The focus of this semester is twofold: students continue the development of a detailed and in-depth research paper and then prepare to present their findings to the academic community.

EL223 Young Adult Literature (3 cr)

Prerequisites: CW102. Novels geared towards readers in middle school and high school have gained extraordinary popularity with this age group in recent years.  Also, during the past two decades, literary critics and cultural theorists have focused more attention on the psychological, social and political implications of your adult fiction.  In this course, we will read classic and contemporary works for young adults by writers such as C.S. Lewis, J.D. Salinger, S.E. Hinton, Judy Blume, J.K. Rowlings, Suzanne Collins and others.

PE119 Introduction to Waterfront Sports (3 cr)

This course offers students an introduction to the waterfront sports of kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding and allows students to work on their strength and balance while fostering a lifelong enjoyment of the water.

CO140 Video Production I (3 cr)

A hands-on approach to video production that offers students an understanding of the principles and practices of video production, including introduction to basic technical skills and theories relative to camera operation, shot/framing techniques, editing, vocabulary, procedure, uses, and career opportunities.

HI105 History of the United States I (3 cr)

HI105 is an introductory survey course which examines the European colonization of North America, the challenges of the colonial era, including the American Revolution and development of constitutionalism, as well as the early national period, the rise of Jacksonian Democracy, and the hardships faced by multiple groups, such as Native American, African Americans and immigrants. Race-based slavery in America, western expansionism, the growth of political parties, women’s rights, and the causes and consequences of the Civil War will also be examined.

A few words on fit.

 

"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.

 

If you are looking for a college that: 

 

  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities

 

 

 

…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
