For the countless number of you who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of next year’s course catalog – your wait is over. Wesleyan’s course catalog for the 2014-2015 academic year has been made public via the website which you all love, or love to hate, WesMaps.
Though, like every year, it might be hard to actually plan your schedule at this point, especially if you are hoping to take any of the many classes whose time-slots are simply listed as TBA. Additionally, even for those classes that have been scheduled, there still exists a possibility for change. But there are also classes which will certainly be added later, some of which might be taught by visiting professors, or be a last minute addition by the QAC.
But do have fun browsing. A sampling of next semester’s classes, as well as next year’s CHUM themes, follow the jump.
Below are some interesting picks from the Fall 2014 selection:
- Sex, Money, and Power: Anthropology of Intimacy and Exchange
- Animal Theories/Human Fictions
- Making a Killing: Murder and True Crime Non/Fiction Narrative
- Solving the World’s Problems: Decision Making and Diplomacy
- Understanding Life and Mind: Topics in the Philosophy of Biology
- The Magic Bullet: Drugs in Modern America
- “You Can Learn a Lot by Just Looking”: Microscopy and Its Central Role in Cell and Molecular Biology (only for MB&B majors, but it has a great title)
Also of note are the future themes of the Center for Humanities:
