Here are some courses related to your majors you may want to
consider taking in Term-2:
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).
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
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
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
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
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)
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.
