3 Credits Status: Open Save this Course View Saved Courses

A workshop devoted to the art and science of a funny story well told. Students will analyze comic fiction, film, and classic television, and create their own short, comic works. They'll learn the basics of screenplay format and scene design, and hone close observation and critical thinking skills. This course satisfies the Film and Media Studies screenwriting requirement.

A writing-intensive course (W) engages students in multiple writing projects, ranging from traditional papers to a wide variety of other forms, distributed throughout the term. Assignments include a mix of high and low stakes writing, meaning that students have the chance to write in informal, low-pressure--even ungraded--contexts, as well as producing larger, more formal writing assignments. Students engage in writing in the classroom through variety of means, including class discussions, workshop, faculty/TA lectures, and class materials (for instance, strong and weak examples of the assigned genre). Expectations are clearly conveyed through assignment descriptions, including the genre and audience of the assigned writing, and evaluative criteria. Students receive feedback on their writing, in written and/or verbal form, from faculty, TAs, and/or peers. Students have at least one opportunity to revise.

This course focuses on building understanding of the culture of engineering while preparing students to communicate effectively with the various audiences with whom engineers interact. Working from a base of contemporary science writing (monographs, non-fiction, popular literature and fiction), students will engage in discussion, argument, case study and project work to investigate: the engineering culture and challenges to that culture, the impacts of engineering solutions on society, the ethical guidelines for the profession, and the ways engineering information is conveyed to the range of audiences for whom the information is critical. Additionally, students will master many of the techniques critical to successful communication within the engineering culture through a series of short papers and presentations associated with analysis of the writings and cases. No audits. WSE juniors and seniors or by instructor approval.

For all the controversy surrounding the use of drones in domestic and international operations, the ramifications of their deployment are not yet clear. This course explores the theoretical and political implications stemming from the introduction of drones into various geopolitical spaces. Most simply put, we will be asking what it means to project power without vulnerability. More specifically, we will draw from recent scholarship from a variety of fields to analyze different use cases, geographic theaters, and short- and long-term impacts of their deployment. Issues of asymmetry, surveillance, precision, civilians/enemy combatants, vulnerability, chains of command, and agency will be central to our study.

CRISPR (clustered regularly-interspaced short palindromic repeat) is one of the greatest advances in biology in the past decade, providing researchers with the tools to precisely and affordably edit genomes and physicians a new tool to cure disease. However, the ability to edit plant and animal genomes, including human genomes, comes with significant ethical considerations. This course will utilize a hybrid classroom-laboratory approach to provide students with both a comprehensive knowledge of the CRISPR system and a deeper understanding of how gene function is studied. At the end of the course, you will not only understand how CRISPR works, but also have a better understanding of the power of genetics to illuminate molecular mechanisms of protein function.
