New Curricula and Academic Programs

Dancers

Among the new academic programs SUNY Oswego offered this fall was the theatre department’s dance minor.

Last year, dozens of faculty and staff members worked collaboratively across disciplines to create new SUNY Oswego Signature Courses that launched this fall.

The courses provide opportunities for students to discuss engaging issues while developing critical thinking, information literacy and both written and oral communication skills. Each class focuses on a unique subject, but all classes are about intellectual curiosity, making campus connections and learning how to thrive in the SUNY Oswego community. Nine faculty developed the small seminar-style classes that were implemented in fall 2018:

• The Talking Dead: Understanding Life from Human Skeletal Remains (ANT 198)

• “Winter is Coming” Bringing Even Stranger Things: Narrative in Popular Television (COM 198)

• How New is #MeToo? The History of Gender Activism in the United States (HIS 198)

• BOUNCE Onto Campus: Laying the Foundation for a Lifetime of Good Health! (HSC 198)

• Snapchat, Terror Cells, and Six Degrees of Separation: The Mathematics of Networks (MAT 198)

• The Injustice League: Crime, Justice, and Inequality in Comic Books (PBJ 198)

• The Witches Are Hunting: Contemporary Feminist Activism in America (POL 198)

• Black-ish Mirror: A Study of Black Characters on Television (THT 198)

• Hakas, Hat Tricks, and Lambeau Leaps: The Theatricality of Sport (THT 198)
