M.A.I.S. Core Seminars

NOTE: MAIS 5350 and 5360 are cross-listed courses (they count for home-department credit or MAIS credit).

 

The specific seminar topics change every semester and are listed in the UTEP "Schedule of Classes" under "Interdisciplinary Studies"

 

 


5350 The History of an Idea

The historical consideration of a seminal idea or concept drawn from art, ethics, politics, science, religion, or philosophy, and an assessment of its contemporary social and cultural importance. This course may be team-taught and/or it may be cross-listed with a course in a participating department. May be repeated once for credit when the topic varies.

 

5360 Contemporary Issues

The detailed examination of a contemporary social or cultural concern from a multi-disciplinary perspective. This course may be team-taught and/or it may be cross-listed with a course in a participating department. May be repeated once for credit when the topic varies.

 

5393 Final Project

The Final Project consists of either: (1) two substantially revised or extended papers originally prepared for two of the graduate level courses taken as a part of the MAIS program, one of which must have been written for MAIS 5350 or MAIS 5360; or (2) a new interdisciplinary paper which is based on two or more papers prepared for graduate level courses taken as a part of the MAIS program. Open only to MAIS students in the final semester of their work.
