Bluefield State College has announced its Instructional Television course offerings for the Spring Semester 1997. These courses permit students to combine television course instruction through WSWP-TV with classroom instruction at BSC's Bluefield campus. A specific listing of course offerings, titles, and times includes:
"Growing Old in a New Age (CNED 306)" Mondays, beginning January 13, 6 p.m.-9 p.m. This course introduces students to the study of an increasingly growing and influential segment of our society--the elderly. It not only informs students about aging, but encourages them to challenge their conceptions of the elderly and attain a new perspective on the potential for growth, development, and the joy in aging.
"Dealing With Diversity (EDUC 290/CNED 307)" Tuesdays, beginning January 14, 6 p.m.-9 p.m., introduces students to people from many diverse populations. The goal is to help students to understand the different constraints and motivations of people from backgrounds different from their own.
"Art History (ART 205/CNED 308)" Thursdays, beginning January 16, 6 p.m.-9 p.m., is an introductory-level course that examines the works of art that have come to define the Western visual tradition from ancient Greece to the present day.
"Ethics in America (SOCI 290/CNED 305)," Saturdays, beginning January 18, 9 a.m.-noon, examines contemporary ethical conflicts and provides a grounding in the language, concepts, and traditions of ethics. At the core of the course is a prime-time t.v. series that places experts from government, the press, medicine, law, business, and the military in the line of fire. "Faces of Culture (GEOG 290/CNED 309)," Saturdays, beginning January 18, 1 p.m.-4 p.m., is a provocative study of the structure and process of culture.
