Most students in Honors program have previously satisfied DISC 100. In ancient Greece, the muses were the goddesses of inspiration in the arts and sciences, and in this class, we explore the inspiration for music in our own time and city. You'll discover what causes artists to create the music they write including: A local hip hop DJ, who breaks down how he creates a groove; a local string quartet, who demonstrate how they play together; our local symphony conductor, who reveals how the symphony works; an artist involved in business, who shares what it takes to be an artist in today's economy; several local concert promoters, discussing how and why they bring music to Kansas City. And many more. Music is all around us and forms the fabric of our memory and identity. Join us as we discover the muses for Kansas City's music. This class surveys European aesthetics, defining what counts as beautiful and the roles art plays in society.

Worlds were upended. Millions of people died through the cumulative impact of warring, labor practices, an disease. Empires were torn down and reconstructed. Christendom was vastly expanded. And, African slaves, tomatoes, potatoes, horses, cattle, pigs, corn, and syphilis traversed the Atlantic in an epoch of unprecedented ecological and cultural exchange. Modernity itself was forged in the crucible of Conquest. This course studies the societies of central Mexico, the Andes, and the Iberian Peninsula on the eve of their encounter, the ways in which each of these distinct societies impacted one another, and the hybrid societies that emerged. We will study historical and literary works, images and films that have reimagined the Spanish conquest and addressed its complexities, myths and enduring legacies Our examination of the historical and literary production from the 1970s serves as a basis for discussing past to contemporary ways of thinking as well as marginal to dominant realities. 007: 47639 UNLINKED ONLINE SECTION (OA) for students who have previously satisfied Anchor II.

Using historical examples and building on current best practices, students will engage critically with the interplay between artistic pursuits, social justices, and community engagement. This course will introduce students to the many facets of how a scientific idea about human health is translated into a drug, a vaccine, a diagnostic or a therapy. By the end of the semester, the student should be able to: Identify the problems, challenges, and opportunities relating to Translational Research in various environments and how Universities and their partners play a role in this research; understand the scientific, economic and regulatory elements that all contribute to translational research and to successful commercial introduction of a new drug, vaccine or diagnostic; understand the relationship between research and clinical practice and how social, political, and cultural issues shape the interdisciplinary relationship between researchers and clinicians at the local and national level; develop an appreciation for the meaning and global impact of the rise of translational research; and engage with the UMKC community of learners and the broader Kansas City community through guest lectures, site visits, and the production and publication of videos that educate the public on issues of translational research. Using interesting archaeological hoaxes, myths, and mysteries from around the world, including within the state of Missouri and in the Kansas City region, students will use science to learn how to make good judgments about the information they receive on various media in today’s world. By exploring a variety of wildly inaccurate claims about the past – in news reports, books, film and other media - within the context of the scientific method, this course will demonstrate how science approaches questions about human antiquity and, in doing so, will show where pseudoscience falls short. By studying both global and local examples, students will be able to have a stronger connection with their own community, and a better understanding of how urbanization has a significant impact on important local cultural resources.

Topics include ethical obligations of professional practice, electronic privacy, intellectual property, software and system security and reliability, and whistle-blowing. This course teaches the principles of ethical analysis and how technology, law, and ethics interact in society, to help the graduate confront and deal with the ethical challenges that arise in professional practice. 0013: 47810 TR 8:30-9:45 0014: 47811 TR 11:30-12:45 How people interact with society, home, and community changes throughout life. So too does their spatial cognition, balance, and strength. Those changes call for modification of the "built environment" and the enabling technologies embodied in the environment. Some of those required changes constitute opportunities to think differently. Imagining a better world is only part of the picture, though. Without translation to a sustainable business model, what might be a solution remains only an idea. This course will do more than teach you how to create something that might make a difference, you'll learn how to get it into people's hands.
