COE 313 – Community Experience: Internship & Seminar – ONLINE

This course is meant to provide a professional experience for the student who has identified a specific career objective or graduate school objective and is interested in gaining significant experience in that field. This may be a volunteer or a paid position and may be combined with additional readings and literature research related to either the position itself or the student’s specific career objective. A formal approval process is followed in which students meet with the faculty advisor with expertise in the area of interest and specify individual learning objectives for the community experience. The approval process precedes registration. After approval, students will attend a mandatory orientation workshop/meeting prior to the community experience and upon completion will attend a mandatory summative workshop/meeting. This course includes a Service-Learning and Community Engaged (SL/CE) component. Prerequisite: PSY 211 and sophomore standing. Additional prerequisites dependent upon proposed experience, or permission of instructor. Meghan Duff. Online computer use required.

ELA 112 – Community & Place – ONLINE with On-Campus Meeting

In this course students will engage in field-based activities to enhance their understanding of communities. By exploring the social, cultural and economic environments of Downeast Maine or their own local communities, students will learn about the history, geography, ethnography, economics or sociology of their region. This course is designed to challenge student assumptions about people and place. Topics vary by semester and instructor. Prerequisite: ENG 101, or may be taken concurrently. Meghan Duff.

ELA 342 – Humans & Nature – ONLINE

Based on a wide selection of exemplary writings from diverse times, cultures, and academic disciplines, the course examines the relationship between humans and nature. By reading, discussing, analyzing, and critiquing the readings, students will learn how different disciplines and cultures approach such issues. They will develop critical reading and writing skills while exploring how assumptions, questions, and methods shape disciplinary approaches, cultural understanding, and human behavior. Instructors from various disciplines will teach the multiple sections and may participate in each others’ classes as appropriate, thus introducing students to a range of UMM’s programs and professors. This survey of a variety of approaches to the single topic of human interactions with nature will establish a shared foundation on which students can build their learning in other discipline-specific core courses and in their majors. Prerequisites: ENG 101 Composition, ELA 101 Recreation & Wellness, ELA 112 Community & Place and Scientific Inquiry core requirement, or junior standing and permission of instructor. Jon Reisman.

Access BlackBoard at https://bb.courses.maine.edu/

ENG 117 – Intro to Literary Cultural Studies – ONLINE

An introduction to the goals, methods, and implications of literary analysis in the 21st century. The underlying assumption is that there is no such thing as a generic or standard reading of a literary work; all readings take place in and depend on a critical framework, whether that be explicit or implicit. From this starting point, the course is constructed around several critical approaches. One of these is a formalist approach in which students interpret the literary text on the basis of its formal features and stylistic conventions. Students will then explore other opposing and overlapping critical approaches, including but not limited to, feminist, Marxist, historicist, and psychological. Prerequisite: ENG 101 or permission of instructor. Marcus LiBrizzi. Online computer use required. Computers are available at University of Maine campuses and at University College centers statewide. Computers are also available at UC sites statewide by appointment. Access BlackBoard at https://bb.courses.maine.edu/

ENG 150 – Intro to Creative Writing – ONLINE

This course introduces students to the techniques and aesthetics of literary creative writing. Genres covered include poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction. Students read, discuss and analyze professional work from the traditional to the experimental from authors with a variety of cultural backgrounds. Students learn about the elements of craft that create artistic effects in each genre — elements such as imagery, metaphor, sound, line breaks, characterization, perspective, setting, structure, sense and plot. Students write, workshop and revise their own creative work in each of the three genres. Offered pass/fail by request and at the discretion of the instructor. Heather Hepler. Online computer use required. Computers are available at University of Maine campuses and at University College centers statewide. Computers are also available at UC sites statewide by appointment. Access BlackBoard at https://bb.courses.maine.edu/

ENG 226 – Summer Reading List – ONLINE

A self-designed, self-paced, reading-intensive course in which students tackle the literary classics they’ve always wanted to read. From a Master List of major texts in American and British literature, students select their own summer reading lists that match guidelines provided by the instructor. Students then take individualized quizzes online at any time during the summer. This class entails a heavy reading load, but it does not require papers, participation or attendance. The entire emphasis is on a student’s reading experience. Students can take this course up to two times. Prerequisite: one 100-level literature course, or permission of instructor. Marcus LiBrizzi. Online computer use required. Computers are available at University of Maine campuses and at University College centers statewide. Computers are also available at UC sites statewide by appointment.

HTY 116 – World History 1500 to Present – ONLINE

The second semester of the sequence examines world history from the 16th century to the present. This much shorter period saw enormous increases in trade, cultural, political and military interaction among all regions of the world. A major theme of this era is colonialism, the rise of European state, economic, and cultural power, and the reactions of the non-Western world to that power. Prerequisite: ENG 101, as pre- or co-requisite. Cristina Arrigoni-Martelli. Online computer use required.

HTY 219 – Golden Age of Piracy – ONLINE

This course uses the topic of piracy to examine the major transformations of the late 16th to the 19th century that ushered in what would become globalization. The rise and fall of three phases of piracy are interrelated with global events including the development of the British Empire, the integration of the Americas into global commerce, and the ratification of international laws. With piracy as our focus, we will look at a wide range of historical documents on topics including economics, demographics of the time, international law, European politics, gender, and literary studies. With literary studies, we will examine readings by authors (e.g., Robert Louis Stevenson, Daniel DeFoe, and James Fenimore Cooper), who helped build modern notions of the Golden Age of Piracy. Additionally, we will examine contemporary notions of the Golden Age of Piracy in popular culture. Finally, the course will conclude with an investigation of a local 1775 naval battle. Daniel Qualls.
