DMS, HIST, PSCI, Int'l Studies

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

Here are some courses related to your majors you may want to consider taking in Term-3, 2013:

HIST 3501 Islam and the Middle East
This course is only offered once a year. If you have interest in the Middle East and/or your current job requires you to have knowledge about the politics and socio-cultural issues in the Middle East, I recommend you register for this course. It can be used as a DMS elective and will fulfill the Non-Eurasian or Elective requirement for HIST majors. Dr. Justin Vance will be teaching this course online.

HIST 3668 Military History of Hawaii
This is a new course we are offering at HPU. The course will examine Military History of Hawaii from the time of unification of the Hawaiian Kingdom to present. Students will meet five Monday evenings in the classroom at Hickam and the have five field study meetings on Saturdays or Sundays. Field study will include Battle of Nuuanu at the Pali Lookout, National Cemetary of the Pacific (Punchbowl), Hawaii Plantation Village and Museum, Iolani Palace, Arizona Memorial, Battleship Missouri Memorial and Pacific Aviation Museum. It can be used as a DMS elective and will fulfill the Non-Eurasian or Elective requirement for HIST majors. The course will be team taught by Dr. Justin Vance and Professor Brenden Bliss. For more information, check out the Term-3 bulletin write-up on page 18.

HUM 3900 Research & Writing in Humanities
This course is a requirement for INTLST majors and is offered only once a year. DMS majors can take this course in place of HIST 3900 (online only in Term-1), especially if you prefer to take a F2F Upper-Division Research & Writing course instead of online. HIST majors can take HUM 3900 in place of HIST 2900, which is offered online only. This course will be taught by Jocelyn Cardenas on Thursdays at Hickam.

INTR 3930 Contemporary Nations: China
Dr. Jim Corcoran is scheduled to teach this course. For those of you who missed taking a class with him last term, this course will fulfill requirements for INTLST/INTLREL majors as well as electives for DMS and PSCI majors. China is a current hot topic and no one better than Dr. Corcoran to teach this class. He not only speaks the language but has in depth knowledge of China, having spent some time in his career there. This course is offered at Hickam on Monday evenings.

PHIL 2090 Principles of Logic
DMS and HIST majors who prefer to not take MATH for the Research B requirement should take PHIL 2090. Dr. William Akina will be teaching this course at Camp Smith on Tuesdays.

The following Upper-Division DMS requirements are also offered this term:
HIST 3662 War and Society Since 1500 with Professor Brenden Bliss (Online)
INTR 3000 International Relations with Dr. Carlos Juarez (Tripler-Fridays)
                                Note: PSCI 3100 is now INTR 3000

JADM Courses Term 3-2013

Aloha JADM Majors,

Here are the JADM courses offered this term at Hickam (Term-3, 2013):

COM 3420 Business Communication
This course fulfills the Upper-Division Research/Writing requirement for JADM majors. Even though most may not think this course would be relevant for JADM majors, having an understanding of how to communicate professionally may be helpful in all career fields. Students have enjoyed communication courses taught by Professor Stephen Litschauer and I think you will too. Course is offered on Mondays.
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 2000 Laws & Courts in World Cultures
Professor Randall Harakal will be teaching this course, another introductory JADM course. He has taught at the Main Campus and students have enjoyed his class. Course will be offered on Tuesdays.

JADM 2060 Civil/Criminal Justice Systems
**Used to be JADM 3060; this course will satisfy the JADM 3060 requirement**
Judge Randal Lee will be teaching this course on Thursdays.

JADM 3310 Law Enforcement: Contemporary Issues
Professor John Little will be teaching this class again this term (offered on Wednesdays).

JADM 3540 Women, Minorities and Justice
This course is an option for the Upper-Division JADM Elective requirement. Professor Sheryl Sunia has extensive knowledge regarding this topic from her career in the Honolulu Police Department. Course will be offered on Mondays.

PSY 3235 Cross-Cultural Psychology
This course will fulfill your cross-cultural requirement. Students have enjoyed taking this course with Dr. Keith Pedro. For those interested in Forensic Psychology, he may be able to give you some insight into the career field as he is a Licensed Clinical and Forensic Psychologist.
The following courses will also be offered online:
COM 3420 Business Communication with Professor Pat Hurley
JADM 2050 Basic Criminology with Professor Sheryl Sunia
**Used to be JADM 3050; this course will satisfy the JADM 3050 requirement**

JADM 3520 Drug Abuse and Justice with Professor Sheryl Sunia
JADM 3550 CSI: Theories and Practices with Professor Sheryl Sunia
SOC 3380 Cross Cultural Relations with Professor Rammy Hajja
**Fulfills cross-cultural requirement. If you have taken PSY 3235, check with advisor before registering for this course as you may only need one cross-cultural requirement**
