HUM 310-41 Death & Dying (online) (3)
Note: this section is available to nursing students only.
Prerequisite: Completion of lower division Humanities requirements.
This course introduces students to psychological, medical, cultural, and ethical aspects of death and dying. Beginning with an examination of how contemporary U.S. culture encourages us to deny our mortality, students will gain a cross-cultural understanding of perceptions of death and dying and how and why these perceptions have changed over time, and they will consider how various authors, poets, and visual artists represent death and dying. Students will be challenged to evaluate their own personal attitudes and beliefs about illness, dying, and death rituals. Specific attention will be paid to how three contemporary writers living in the United States use literary non-fiction to explore modern forms of death and dying and give them meaning. Course requirements include two critical essays, one interview with a professional working within the death system (which students are responsible for scheduling), two exams, and active participation in online discussion forums.

HUM 314-01 Love in the Western Tradition (3)
In this course we evaluate the construct of romantic love in western culture using historical, aesthetic, psychological and social perspectives. The concept of romantic love, as we will see, defines social and psychological patterns, develops styles in literature, is the center of some philosophical approaches, and is linked to values and ethical definitions in contemporary movements. Classical through modern works of philosophy, literature, visual arts, and music are examined to appreciate the emergence, historically, of the concept of romantic love. Discussion includes how idealized love is communicated through texts and to what extent idealized love is expressed in social practices in selected historical periods, including contemporary life. The following themes will be covered: individual and society, feminism, married love vs. romantic love, and sentimentality vs. passion.
