Senior status and permission of the Department Chair Credits: Internship Selected topics of current interest in Automotive Engineering Technology. Air Force I This is a survey course designed to introduce students to the United States Air Force and provides an overview of the basic characteristics, missions, and organization of the Air Force.
The course covers the history and structure of the US Air Force, the Air Force's capabilities, career opportunities, benefits, and Air Force installations. Air and Space Power I This course features topics on Air Force heritage and leaders; introduction to air power through examination of the Air Force Core Functions; and continued application of communication skills.
Its purpose is to instill an appreciation of the development and employment of air power. Case studies are used to examine Air Force leadership and management situations as a means of demonstrating and exercising practical applications of the concepts being studied. Special topics of interest focus on the military as a profession, officer ship, military justice, civilian control of the military, preparation for active duty, and current issues affecting military professionalism.
Within this structure, continued emphasis is given to refining communication skills. This course offers an introduction to its four major sub-fields, namely; Physical or Biological anthropology human evolution, the fossil record, ethology ; Archaeology extinct cultures, classical civilizations, pre-history ; Linguistics language origins, development, diffusion, structure, and change ; Sociocultural Anthropology pioneers in the field, cross-cultural research, case studies, and the future.
By focusing on the broad cultural implications and complexities of social communication and interaction, anthropology seeks to understand the whole human experience. Subsistence patterns, social organization, economic structures, political systems, religion and creative behavior are the major areas we cover.
By examining examples ranging from small gathering and hunting groups to large modern day communities, this course provides a broad perspective of the sociocultural realities of our world. This course introduces the methods, logic and history of archaeology through an examination of several ancient civilizations as understood through their architecture and artifacts. Topics include theoretical issues, fieldwork, and interpretation of artifacts and reconstruction of past cultural patterns.
Students will visit at least one relevant site, exhibit or museum as a course requirement. It focuses on the dynamic heritages, languages, knowledge, technology, arts, and values that have been passed on through the generations. Students will be introduced to the anthropological literature concerned with the study and understanding of Native American cultures and societies. Some field study may be required. By introducing students to the application of anthropological methodologies such as field work and cross-cultural comparison, the course examines some of the major issues which confront human beings in a complex rapidly growing and changing world including: Any level social science or business course.
