French Culture II

The course will primarily include interactions with cultural partners: French Cultural services of the General Consulates of France and Switzerland in Atlanta via on-campus events within the framework of the Villa Albertine Project. Reinventing artists’ residencies, Villa Albertine is creating a network for arts and ideas spanning France and the United States. It offers tailor-made residencies for global creators, thinkers and cultural professionals.

Race, Space, and Architecture in the United States

This course is interdisciplinary by nature, referencing the projects and methodologies of architects and architectural historians, as well as archaeologists, artists, designers, environmentalists, ethnographers, photographers, urbanists, sociologists, technicians, and writers. Although we will cover topics and themes across the U.S., our focus will decidedly be on the American South and we will leverage our location in Atlanta.

Chamber Choir

The course will offer interactive participation with choirs from other countries and cultures.

 

Introduction to Engineering Graphics

Learn graphics and CAD tools through socio-technical project-based learning with Motivational Designs for Sustainability. Design based activities that incorporate social justice and sustainability are engaged by both individual and team projects.

Engaging Global Communities

This course brings together students from six metro Atlanta institutions to provide them with a unique opportunity in cross-institutional community building, community partner engagement, and professional development, under the auspices of a global communities theme. The instructor team brings a wealth of expertise on the topic, and students will enjoy dynamic sessions led by Clarkston-based community partners and have the option of joining one or more of three Clarkston site visits throughout the term.

Smart and Sustainable Cities

This course introduces key concepts necessary to effectively plan and develop sustainable infrastructure for cities. The infrastructure concepts include water, electricity, transportation, buildings, and waste management. These skills are vital given that we expect to see an increasing portion of our existing global population (i.e., ~8 billion people at 55% urbanization) dwell in urban environments through the year 2050 (i.e., ~10 billion people at 68% urbanization).

The Cultural History of Trees and the Tech Tower White Oak

In a recent episode of the television series Ted Lasso, Beard (Ted’s assistant coach) name-drops Suzanne Simard in a random comment. Prior to that conversation, he is seen reading Merlin Sheldrake’s recent book Entangled Life. Sheldrake and Simard study the complex interactions between trees, plants, fungi, and bacteria— work that points toward different research models and questions how we conceptualize life. Other scholars across many fields have in the last decade begun to rethink the complex entanglements of human and non-human lives, with trees figuring prominently.

Optical Properties of Nanoparticles

This course is designed for graduate students in the school of chemistry and biochemistry. Also, students from different academic units, including physics, materials science, electrical and chemical engineering, and others are encouraged to take this course. The course will highlight recent advances in the area of plasmonics and the focus will be on light-matter integration at the nanoscale, optical properties of nanoparticles, the unique world of metal nanoparticles, and the importance of metal nanoparticles for diverse applications including, electronics, photonics, and nanomedicine.
