"Introduction to Meteorology" (SCI-145) an introduction to the physical processes governing the weather that we observe every day and the weather and climate issues that are so important to the human condition. This course is intended as both a general information course for both science and non-science oriented students and an introduction to meteorology for those students who may be considering a career in the atmospheric sciences. Classes meet Tuesday and Thursday, from 1:00 PM to 2:15 PM.

"Literature of Peace & War" (ENG-204) a study of mankind's quest for peace and resort to war as reflected in literature. Writers to be sampled may include Thucydides, Virgil, Shakespeare, Thoreau, Whitman, Crane, Owen, Remarque, Hemingway, Lowell, Vonnegut, O'Brien and others past and present. Classes meet Wednesday, from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

"History/Culture of Japan" (HIS-236) a survey of the history and culture of Japan, using the events of history and elements of culture. This course is designed to lead the student into greater understanding of contemporary Japan and the Japanese. Classes meet Wednesday, from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
