Cool Classes

Student painting in art classLooking for a cool class to take? 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.
