Environmental Science

Marine Field Methods (ENVS 388/ENVS 588)
This course focuses on the ecology of local marine environments. Students learn marine field survey methods, identification of marine organisms, habitat analyses, and use of equipment for measuring abiotic variables. Students sample fish, plankton and invertebrate species aboard the 25-foot Drexel research vessel, Peter Kilham, in Barnegat Bay, New Jersey.

This 4.0 credit course, taught by Dane Ward, PhD, is open to graduate students and to pre-juniors, juniors and seniors with a prerequisite of ENVS 230 or BIO 126. It will meet during break week in September 2019.

Field Botany of the New Jersey Pine Barrens (ENVS 382/ENVS 582)
This course focuses on plant identification skills that are necessary to conduct scientific botanical surveys. The vascular flora of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, including rare plant species, is emphasized with special reference to habitat and community analysis. Non-vascular species are examined but not emphasized.

This 4.0 credit course, taught by Tatyana Livshultz, PhD, is open to pre-juniors, juniors, seniors and graduate students. It will meet Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 4:50 p.m. Location changes week to week.

French

French Media: infos ou infaux (FREN 350.940)
This course provides an introduction to the role of language and media in society, including sociolinguistics, gender, media studies and communication. The content of this course may change every term it is offered and is repeatable for credit. Taught in French.

This 3.0 credit online course, taught by Kathryn Dettmer, is open to undergraduate students who have taken FREN 310 with a minimum grade of a C.

Global Studies

Crossing the Bridge (GST T280.940)
This course is designed for students who are experiencing the “otherness” of culturally diverse groups through living, studying or working abroad. Students will integrate and build on their intercultural experiences through a self-reflective process, and will become aware of the impact the students' own culture has on these experiences.

This 3.0 credit online course, taught by Simone Schlichting-Artur, EdD, is open to all undergraduate students.

Spanish

Sanctuary Cities (SPAN 440)
This course provides an advanced analysis of power relations and issues of (in)equality rooted in contemporary political and socio-economic systems. The content of this course may change every term it is offered and is repeatable for credit. Taught in Spanish.

This 3.0 credit course, taught by Steve Dolph, PhD, is open to undergraduates who have taken SPAN 310 and SPAN 320, SPAN 330, SPAN 340 or SPAN 350 with a minimum grade of a C. It will meet Tuesdays from 6:30 – 9:20 p.m. Location TBD.

Women's and Gender Studies

Power, Gender, and Hollywood (WGST T280)
In 2017, 88 percent of the top 250 films had no female directors, 83 percent had no female writers, and 96 percent had no female cinematographers. When we also consider the overwhelming allegations of sexual harassment, one might wonder if there is any hope for gender equality in Hollywood. In this course, we will attempt to answer that question by tracing a gendered history of film. We will meet landmark figures, examine the relationship between representation and reality, and acquire analytical tools to help us become cannier consumers as well as advocates for change.

This 3.0 credit course, taught by Jacqueline Sadashige, is open to all undergraduate students. It will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 – 3:20 p.m. Location TBD.
