Cool Classes for Fall 2014

A dragon thinking about cool subjects. Looking for a cool class to take this fall? Then look here! You'll find special topics courses from across the College, spanning liberal arts and sciences and sometimes combining both. Our departments offer special topics courses only occasionally, and the selection is different every semester — which means if you don't take it when it is offered, you probably won't get the chance to take it later.

Unless otherwise noted, all courses are 3 credit hours and will be offered in Fall 2014.
