Courses

Course Title Instructor Time Notes Description
BS443 Research Methods II Broccoli *this class runs May 11-June 19 3 credits (fall) DA: L3 APS Prerequisites: BS331 (C- or better in BS331) 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.

EL399 Sp Top: International Literature in the New Millennium Cammarata 1:00pm-4:45pm (M-Sat) meets EL requirement 3 credits DA: L2 Div: Prerequisite: CW102 (C- grade or better). European literature has always had the luxury of portraying any subject matter in any place or time without hesitation from its audience. However, international literature, either written by minorities or by Europeans, has often been through the lens of “the struggle.” Think “Roots”, “Their Eyes Were Watching God”, “Invisible Man”. These are epic and unforgettable in the canon of literature, however, there is a movement to leave behind these stories of struggle and give way to a new form of literature for international minority groups, just as the Europeans have had for centuries and allow exploration into these new written realms. This course will explore new works by ethnic writers, analyzing structure, plot, theme and more to gain a more diverse sense of literature. Sample Readings: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie stories from “That Thing Around Your Neck”, Modern Arabic Literature, excerpts from “Exit West” by Moshin Hamid.

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.
