College of Arts and Sciences Offers Summer Coursework

Over 200+ summer and online courses will be offered this summer from A&S.

CLA 135: Greek and Roman Mythology with Tedd Higgs

The Greek myths studied both from the standpoint of their meaning to the Greeks and Romans and from the standpoint of their use in later literature and in everyday life.

CLA 261: Masterpieces of Greek and Roman Literature with Ted Higgs

A survey of major Greek and Roman literary works. Attention will be focused on the various genres of Classical literature, and the course will include comparative analysis of Greek and Latin literary pieces.

PHI 120: Introductory Logic with Bob Sandmeyer

A course which treats argumentation, formal deductive and non-formal inductive logic. The course has a dual focus. First, students will learn how to construct and evaluate formal deductive arguments. Second, students will learn how to analyze and evaluate inductive arguments. The aim of the course is to inculcate standards of good reasoning, e.g., clarity, consistency and validity

PS 101: American History with Dr. Richard Waterman

Explore the inner workings of the American political system just before the 2012 election starts heating up in the Fall. This course is an appropriate first step on the path toward earning a Major or Minor in Political Science and, for students pursuing degrees at the University of Kentucky, also fulfills the U.S. citizenship requirement of UKCore. Taking it in Summer 2012 will give students the background (and at UK a specific prerequisite) needed to enroll in Fall courses that tap into the election-year excitement, such as those on campaigns & elections, on political parties, or on the presidency. Bulletin description: "A survey of national government and the political process in the United States, with emphasis on the Constitution, the President, Congress, and the judicial system."

LIN/ENG 211: Introduction to Linguistics

This course is an introduction to the scientific study of human language, with an emphasis on the fundamental principles of linguistic theory, and applications of these principles in the investigation of grammatical structure. Through the course of the semester, you will learn to analyze the primary areas of grammar found in all human languages. These will include phonetics (the production and perception of language sounds), phonology (the ways in which sounds are organized in a language), morphology (the structure of words), syntax (the ways in which words are combined into sentences), and semantics (how language conveys meaning). Credit will not be given to students who already have credit for ENG 414G. (Same as ENG 211.)
