Course Descriptions

The focus will be on understanding the methods and issues related to communicating and interpreting financial information. Topics include accrual accounting, the accounting cycle, financial statement presentation, the time value of money, inventory methods, internal control, cash management, and accounting for assets, liabilities, and stockholders’ equity.

ENG205: Contemporary Global Literature

In this course, students explore the literary and rhetorical qualities of various contemporary texts. Readings are chosen for their relevance to both local and global perspectives. To fully appreciate the literature, students will develop a basic familiarity with the historical and cultural factors at play in each text. This course will improve students’ close reading skills as well as engage them in some of the major debates in today’s increasingly globalized world. This course does not fulfill requirements for the English literature major or minor.

ENG210: Myth and Symbol

Fulfills Core Requirement in Literature

Symbols, archetypes, and mythological allusions saturate world literature. To increase awareness and appreciation of these powerful presences, this course provides a brief survey of Greek mythology, traditional folk and fairy tales, and contemporary examples of densely symbolic works.

Theme: Building Global Awareness

GST450: The Capstone Experience

As the capstone of the University’s Core Curriculum, this course encourages students to integrate their undergraduate experience and look toward their future with thoughtfulness, sensitivity and openness. Using the liberal arts skills of critical reading, discussion, analysis and writing, this course will challenge students to address issues of personal development as well as social concerns in ways that reflect the mission of the University. Required readings will engage personal, social, philosophical and religious themes.

Prerequisite:  PHL220 and RTS210.

The attempts to curb the unethical actions of business through legal constraints are examined in depth. Emphasis is placed on research, case study analysis, critical thinking and the strengthening of individual accountability and responsibility for maintaining ethical standards based on justice, respect for the rights of others and honesty in the global business environment.

A second internship is allowed (a total of six credits) provided the second internship is completed at a different organization.
