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.

CO115 Intro to Film Study (3 cr)

Introduction to Film Study and Appreciation will give students an historical understanding of American film production and a critical perspective from which to view contemporary film. Beginning with the dawn of silent film and continuing through the developments of the new independent cinema, this course will examine Hollywood cinema as an institution: its history, genres, and work as both a cultural form and as an industry.

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.

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.

SC199 Sp. Topics: Science of Your Campus (4 cr)

Explore your campus in a whole new way — from a scientist’s eye. From the beach to the woods and everything in between, this class will look at the many different environments on campus and the impacts humans are having on these ecosystems. Outdoor activities will fully immerse students in these habitats, while complementing classroom learning. Other topics to be covered include food sustainability, energy and water usage, as well as management of these resources to become well-informed critical thinkers around your campus.

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.
