So there is two classes, both count as a humanities and United States elective and would help me to be even closer to being done. Both are at the same time and it’s probably a good idea to just take one and get it out of the way. My options are:
AMST- 206 The Sixties (American Studies)
The course focuses on protest and the role of youth. Who protested and why? Was the phenomenon of the sixties an aberration or part of a larger radical tradition in America? What was the impact on the seventies? Readings are drawn from the works of participants in the student, black, feminist and peace protest movements, from the intellectuals who defended and attacked them, and from the growing body of retrospective, analytic, and historical literature which attempts to explain what really happened in that tumultuous decade.
PHIL- 108 Moral and Social Problems (Philosophy)
Important moral and social issues of current concern are examined and debated. The course covers several problems each semester from a list including criminal punishment, war, abortion, racism, violence, the death penalty, private property, sexism, animal rights, the environment, and hunger.
