This course covers the study and history of African politics and life since the achievement of Independence by most African states in contemporary times. Significant events, continuities and conflicts between the African past and present will be examined in order to better understand the modern African situation. Thus some understanding of African cultures, societies, and entities before the colonial period is important as well as how Africans see themselves and their points of view. The course covers Africa’s modern period from the second half of the 19th century (1880 AD The West scramble for Africa) to contemporary times. Africa is a continent that is not monolithic and filled with many different cultures, languages, and groups and thus the focus on a particular region might depend on the expertise of the instructor. Learning about Africa is an essential part of becoming a citizen of the world since it is was where all humans originated and continues to provide many Nations with Oil, food, minerals, and labor.

This course is designed to make a critical, yet realistic, look at drug use, misuse, abuse and addiction. Students will explore the history, physical/psychological effects, current trends and legal/social consequences of drugs. In addition, the class will discuss prevention, intervention and treatment approaches. Since there will be varying perspectives of drugs, controversial issues such as “should drugs be legalized”, “should employers require drug testing” or is “harm reduction a desirable national control drug goal” will be debated throughout the semester. Another component of the course will take an intricate look at the “war on drugs”, including resource allocation, authority over drug policy, and drug control strategies. Social justice issues such as racism, classism, sexism, etc. in relation to the use and legal ramifications of drugs will be examined. Realistic scenarios depicting drug use, abuse, distribution and transportation will be integrated into the course. Utilizing an experiential learning approach, students will implement campaigns to address drug issues on campus.

Over the centuries and against all hardship, women were interested, involved and successful at deciphering the secrets of nature. However, their scientific legacy was grossly overlooked. The Nobel Prize and Prize in Economic Sciences have been awarded to women 47 times between 1901 and 2014. Only one woman, Marie Curie, has been honored twice, with the 1903 Nobel Prize in Physics and the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. This means that 46 women in total have been awarded the Nobel Prize between 1901 and 2014. The object of this course is to present a perspective of the social barriers faced by women in order to fulfill a scientific career and their most notable achievements in science. The course will also present basic elements science related to each profile presented.
