Newburgh, NY -
Mount Saint Mary College has launched new courses this spring
from Neuroscience to Philosophy for a New Generation, and more.
Introduction to the Neurosciences, taught by
Sarah Uzelac and Carl Hoegler, is an interdisciplinary course in
psychology and biology. It explores the relationship between the
nervous system and human behavior, introducing students to basic
concepts of neurobiology. The course also covers sensory processing
and motor excitation, and higher functions of brain activity.
Philosophy for a New Generation is a seminar
course taught by Justin Chiarot that provides a robust
understanding of both sides of the “God Debate.” Beginning with
Nietzsche and Bertrand Russell, and climaxing with the “New
Atheists,” Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris, and Dennett, students will
become fluent in the language of "modern atheism."
Online Social Media: a Communication Tool will
focus on the varied uses of online media in marketing and public
relations communication. The course is taught by Eric
Pharmacology for RNs will be taught by Andrea
Ackermann, chair of nursing, beginning in March. Based on the
pre-licensure pharmacology course offered at the Mount, it is
designed for the professional registered nurse. The Mount's RN to
BSN blended online course features interactive modules and only one
day per week in class.
