ENT4499-D286 Culmination F15

The course is to serve as the senior thesis project. The student will either: 1) act in a principal supervisory role in a production as a designer or technical director; 2) propose, design and build a specialized piece of show equipment; or 3) develop a project which utilizes his/her skills in a new and innovative way that relates to or impacts on the entertainment industry. All projects must be approved by the adviser and should demonstrate professional management, technical design and presentation skills. Documentation of planning, design and realization will be presented to a committee of instructors, both in entertainment technology and related disciplines, as well as industry professionals; all are to be selected by the students and approved by the adviser. Though students will enroll in the course during their senior year, development of the project should begin during the second semester of the junior year.

ENG2200: American Literature I Fall 2014

ENG2200: American Literature I Fall 2014

This course will allow us to thoroughly examine the literature that shaped America during the nineteenth century. As a class, we will read some of the greatest literary classics ever written and, as we dissect the writers’ stories and messages, determine how, exactly, the writing shaped the developing society and vice versa. We will read essays, short stories, and novels, along with films, that address the relevant issues of the day. The purpose of this course is to not only read and discuss great works, but, moreover, to figure out the pragmatic scope of the American character. This course is both reading and writing intensive. As such, to make sure we are processing the classroom discussions, we will have several exams on the short stories, novels, and films we scrutinize together. Each of us will be responsible for multiple short essay papers that will require online and/or library research, and there will also be a major research paper assigned that will require each of us to review and outline lessons learned throughout the entire semester; as such, constant note taking is not only strongly encouraged but required. Keep in mind that this class requires the ability to engage in mature conversations, as we will talk openly about racism, religion, sexism, sex, Class, culture, poverty, and politics.
