Aloha DMS, HIST, PSCI and INTLREL/ST Majors,

Here are some courses related to your majors you may want to consider taking in Term-2:
ARTH 2820 Images of the Military in Visual Art and Culture
This course examines selected images of military representations as fine arts from classical to modern times in global contexts. It aims to reconsider how these images are being constructed in mainly four regions: Near East, Europe, Asia and North America.  This course satisfies World C requirement as well as the Art Theme requirement.  It will be offered at Hickam on Thursday evenings.

CHIN 1100 Beginning Mandarin
If you have not completed your language requirement, consider taking CHIN 1100. China plays a significant role in the world – economically, socially and politically. Thus, it will be advantageous to learn Mandarin especially for BAINTLST majors with Asian Concentration (besides China, Mandarin is spoken in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia). CHIN 1100 will be offered at Hickam on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Note: Language courses end at 8pm instead of 9:40pm and are (4) semester hours instead of (3). 
ECON 3300 Money and Banking
For INTLREL majors, ECON 3300 can be substituted for one of the upper-division ECON requirements (you need two). If you are using VA for tuition, see your advisor to complete a General Petition prior to registering for the course. ECON 3300 will be offered at Hickam on Wednesday evenings. 

HIST 2402 History of Modern China
For HIST majors, most of you will have to complete at least one lower-division American History course. HIST 2402 covers the Civil War and its aftermath, industrialization, external expansion, two world wars, and domestic affairs from 1865 to the present. Dr. Justin Vance will be teaching this course at Hickam on Wednesday evenings.

HIST 3666 U.S. Military History
HIST 4961 History of Military Thought
Dr. Brian Price will be teaching both these courses – HIST 3666 at K-Bay on Wednesdays and HIST 4961 at Hickam on Thursdays. Dr. Price received his Ph.D. from the University of North Texas in History, where he worked on European and American military history. For the last two years, he worked with the US Army’s Human Terrain System in Afghanistan, where as a combat advisor, he conducted field research with combat patrols and provided socio-cultural, political and security analysis for NATO and American forces in Kapisa and Ghazni provinces.

INTR 1000 The International System
How should we think about this new world that is marked by the integration of globalization and the division of terrorism and genocide? This course will present major works by well-known thinkers on both previous global systems and new views of the present and future international systems. This course is a good Global C option so you only have to take (1) Natural Science course.  INTR 1000 will be offered at Tripler on Tuesday evenings.

We are also offering several Upper-Division Electives this term:
                HIST 3302 History of Modern China (Hickam-Fridays)
                INTR 3400 International Relations of Asia (Hickam-Tuesdays)    
INTR 3900 Contemporary Nations: Philippines (Hickam-Mondays)

For ROTC students with projected commissioning date of May 2014 and have not completed STSS 2601 War and Civilization, I recommend you take the course in Term-2 online. Also, please make sure you meet with your advisor to plan out the remainder of your classes. 

REGISTRATION IS OPEN - so stop by your HPU base office soon to register early!

Term2 JADM Majors

Aloha JADM Majors,

Here are the JADM courses offered this term:

JADM 2050 Basic Criminology
**Used to be JADM 3050; this course will satisfy the JADM 3050 requirement**

JADM 3070 Justice Management
For those who have been asking why Professor John Little did not teach a course last term, he will be teaching both JADM 2050 and JADM 3070 this term (both offered at Hickam on Mondays and Thursdays respectively). There’s also still time to register for the JADM 3520 Drug Abuse and Justice course he’s teaching in the Interim at Hickam (which will run 17 December through 5 January).

JADM 3300 Criminal Procedures
Judge Randal Lee will be teaching this course. For those of you who have taken his classroom courses, you may want to consider taking JADM 3300 with him. This course will be offered online. It is recommended that you have completed JADM 3500 Criminal Law before enrolling in JADM 3300. 

JADM 3320 Corrections: Process/Programs
Professor Jennifer Merkle is teaching this course and you will find that her personal experiences and the real life situations she has encountered will make this class very interesting and educational. Professor Merkle is an attorney with the Federal Detention Center and as mentioned in her syllabus, she will be: “Introducing the issues faced by corrections professionals on a regular basis. For those not interested in a career in corrections, this course will introduce to you the challenging and often competing goals society sets for correctional facilities and correctional professionals.” This course should help students understand the real-life impact that proposals impacting corrections can have. JADM 3320 will be offered at Hickam on Wednesday evenings.
The following courses will also be offered online:
JADM 1000 Crimes and Criminals
JADM 2000 Laws & Courts in World Cultures
JADM 2060 Civil/Criminal Justice Systems (**Same course as JADM 3060**)
JADM 3530 Juvenile Deviancy and Justice
SOC 3100 Methods of Inquiry

Best wishes and REGISTER EARLY! :)

Term2 General Education Courses

Aloha Hickam Ohana,

We have several GenEd courses that you may want to consider taking in Term-2 (January-March).
ARTH 2820 Images of the Military in Visual Art and Culture
This course examines selected images of military representations as fine arts from Classical to Modern times in global contexts. It aims to reconsider how these images are being constructed in mainly four regions: Near East, Europe, Asia and North America.  A field trip to the Honolulu Museum of Arts is also planned for this course. This course satisfies World A or World C requirement as well as the Art Theme requirement.  It will be offered at Hickam on Thursday evenings.

CHIN 1100 Beginning Mandarin
China plays a significant role in the world’s economy. If you are a business major or planning to pursue a position in a multinational, NGO or government affiliated institution, whose operations are active in China or other Asian nations (Mandarin is also spoken in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia), it will be advantageous to learn Mandarin. Modern Language is a requirement for certain majors but this course can also substitute for Global B requirement – check with your advisor. CHIN 1100 will be offered at Hickam on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Note: language courses end at 8pm instead of 9:40pm and are (4) semester hours instead of (3).  

INTR 1000 The International System
How should we think about this new world that is marked by the integration of globalization and the division of terrorism and genocide? This course will present major works by well-known thinkers on both previous global systems and new views of the present and future international systems. This course is a good Global C option for INTR/INTLST/DMS/PSCI majors or anyone who prefers not to take (2) Natural Science courses.  INTR 1000 will be offered at Tripler on Tuesday evenings.

MUS 1000 Intro to Western Classical Music
MUS 1000 is usually offered online but due to demand from students, we have started to offer the course in the classroom. We received positive reviews for Dr. Beth Uele’s course two terms ago. Students were pleasantly surprised that they would enjoy and learn from this class.  This course is a good option for World C requirement and will meet Art Theme requirements as well.  MUS 1000 will be offered at Hickam on Tuesdays.

If you have any questions about these classes or concerns with your degree plan, please contact your HPU base location as soon as possible.

Best wishes and REGISTER EARLY!

Interim - December Accelerated Classes

Aloha Hickam Ohana,

If you are not going home for the Holidays and would like to get an extra course in before regular Term-2 starts, consider taking a class in the Interim.

For those completing CCAF, COM 2000 Public Speaking will be offered at Hickam. Besides COM 2000, we are also offering PSY 1000 Intro to Psychology and SOC 1000 Intro to Sociology online - either will meet the Social Science requirement.

For JADM majors, if you need to fulfill an Upper-Division JADM elective requirement, Professor John Little will be teaching JADM 3520 Drug Abuse & Justice at Hickam.

For DMS, INTR, INTLST and PSCI majors, PSCI 3430 America: Images from Abroad is being offered online. This course can fulfill Upper-Division elective requirement for DMS, INTR and PSCI majors. For INTLST majors, this course is an elective option for the American Concentration.

For Business majors, if you have not completed MGMT 1000 Principles of Management, this is a great course to complete during the Interim since it’s a prerequisite for your Upper-Division MGMT courses. If Human Resource Management or General Business is your concentration, MGMT 3421 Managing Employee Benefit Plan is offered online. This course is very relevant to any business setting.

Registration for the Interim is ongoing. Please contact your HPU-MCP Office for more information regarding class time and dates. Or visit the ‘Courses’ tab on our Hickam blog.

Have a Wonderful  & Happy Thanksgiving!!

USS Missouri - Overnight Encampment


SAT/SUN 10-11 NOVEMBER 2012!

The ADMS Executive is currently organizing its ever popular annual overnight encampment on the USS Missouri. This year we are planning to sleepover overnight on the Mighty Mo on Saturday/Sunday 10-11th November.  Check in time on Saturday 10th will be late afternoon. Checkout time on Sunday 11th will be mid-morning.
As November 11 is Veterans' Day this is a particularly appropriate time to have the sleepover and reflect upon the contributions and sacrifices made by Veterans and service members everywhere.

The price will be $65. More details will be forthcoming in the near future from the ADMS Executive. In the meantime, please block off the date so you can participate.

Camp Smith Classes

Students taking classes at Camp Smith this term will need a badge to enter the building (in addition to the base pass, if needed). 
The badge will be issued to students on the first night of class and must be returned on the last night of classes. 
Not returning the badge will result in a hold on your student account with HPU.

Renting Books?

Planning to rent books?

Students must have a student ID to rent books from the main campus bookstores (rentals are not currently available at the military base locations).

Gen Ed Requirements Term 1-2013

Are you trying to figure out which GenEd courses you can take in Term-1? Maybe to balance out the upper division courses you are taking? We have several GenEd courses that you may want to consider.
ARTH 2100 Tribal Arts
This course will examine the indigenous art and architecture of sub Saharan Africa, Native America and the Pacific. It satisfies World A requirement as well as the Art Theme requirement.  This course is offered at Schofield on Wednesday evenings.  **CLASS CANCELED**

ENG 2301 World Film Studies
Like watching movies? This course will examine important feature films that are rarely seen in the United States. It also surveys several national cinemas and international trends, with particular attention to the increasing globalization of the film industry. The learning activities in the class will include film screenings and field trips including to the Hawaii International Film Festival. The last time we offered this course, it received rave reviews from the students. This course satisfies Values B as well as the Art Theme requirement. Consult your advisor as it may also substitute for other GenEd requirements. This course is offered at Pearl on Monday evenings. **CLASS CANCELED**

HIST 2401 American History to 1877
This course may be a good option for History majors. Also, Dr. Jim Corcoran will be teaching the course so it will be a fun, engaging and mind enriching course. It is being offered at Camp Smith on Thursdays.

MARS 1000 Introductory Oceanography
This course is a good option for the Global A requirement. It is usually only offered online and students have been requesting for it to be offered in the classroom. It’s being offered at Pearl on Saturdays.

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Attention JADM Majors!

Aloha JADM Majors,

We have almost two more weeks of registration before the start of Term-1. We have quite a number of JADM classes offered at Hickam and online this term so lots of choices.
JADM 1000 Crimes and Criminals
I know this class is not quite appealing since it’s on a Saturday but it’s a great intro to the JADM program. Also, no writing prerequisite is required for the class so if you are still taking Writing and would like to start delving into JADM courses, this would be a good choice.

JADM 3500 Criminal Law
If you are planning to take JADM 3300 Criminal Procedures next term, I recommend you take JADM 3500 this term. Students tend to do better if they take JADM 3500 before JADM 3300. Also, we have Judge Randal Lee teaching the course. He is a Circuit Court Judge and was in the Honolulu Prosecutor’s Office prior to becoming a judge.

JADM 3510 Crime Victims and Justice
This course is an option for your Upper-Division JADM Electives. Professor Jennifer Merkle is the instructor for the course. She is an attorney with the Federal Detention Center. She has prior experiences as a social worker and is very interested in the field of victimology. She will bring personal experiences and real life situations into the classroom. Professor Merkle is also teaching JADM 3310 Law Enforcement: Contemporary Issues online. 

JADM 3550 CSI: Theories and Practices
This course received rave reviews the last time it was offered in class. It includes a visit to the morgue and videos/scenarios assist in the learning environment. Professor Sheryl Sunia retired from the Honolulu Police Department in 2009 after 29 years of service (20 years as a detective). In 2011, she became the first woman to be assigned to the homicide detail. She also worked as a hostage/crisis negotiator and was involved in several high profile cases. With this much experience, I’m sure you would find her class an enriching experience. Professor is also teaching JADM 2050 Basic Criminology online.

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Attention DMS & INTLREL/ST Majors!!

Aloha DMS and INTLREL/ST Majors,

We have two more weeks of registration before the start of Term-1. We have some changes to courses offered as well as some interesting courses that may interest you.
INTR 3000/PSCI 3100 International Relations
If you are waiting to take International Relations, it is no longer offered as PSCI 3100 but INTR 3000. It’s offered online this term and the instructor is Kim DeVidts. We are hoping to offer the course in the classroom in Term-3 if you prefer not to take it online.

HIST 4661 History of Military Thought
If you are planning to graduate in May 2013, please take this course in Term-1. This course is normally offered only once a year.

PHIL 2090 Principles of Logic
This course is being taught as a Directed Study this term. The class will meet the first week and possibly another 4 or 5 more times in the classroom. The rest of the time, the course will be online. Since it’s a directed study, we cap the enrollment at 7. There are already 5 students in the class so if you need it to graduate in December 2012, please register as soon as possible. 

We are offering several Upper-Division DMS Electives this term:
                HIST 3411 US: Jackson to Civil War (Hickam)
                INTR 3900 Contemporary Nations: India (Hickam)
                PSCI 3200 Public Administration (Online)
                PSCI 3890 Homeland Security (Online)

INTR 3900 Contemporary Nations: India
Most may not see India as relevant but here’s some insight about this country and this course from Dr. James Corcoran:
India is now designated as one of the Pacific Command’s most important security and strategy partners in Asia.  India is the fourth most powerful military in the world, America #1, Russia #2, China #3 (reference Global Firepower,  at ). India is in the top 10 of the world’s economies (reference ).
The competition with China for dominance over the Indian Ocean increases where India’s navy (modeled on the British Navy as a legacy of colonialization) is seen to be superior to China’s (now expanding) navy (Dr. Corcoran’s article on the Indian Navy and Indian Ocean at ).
My experience as the Defense and Army Attaché and Security Assistance Officer in Dhaka Bangladesh, working directly together with diplomatic and military personnel from Pakistan, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Burma, China and other regional neighbors, combined with my academic studies in the field of India and South Asia make for a course of instruction which combines practical field experience with academic achievement.
This course will include assessment of India in the larger region to include relations with and roles of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Burma, China, Russia, and other major players to include the United States of America.
