Italy: UB Classics in the Mediterranean Winter 2020 Program

Posted by Tim on October 9, 2019 in Study Abroad, UB Curriculum, Winter Session

Check out the UB Classics in the Mediterranean Winter 2020 Program!

UB Classics in Italy is a winter session program that will take place around the spectacular and historic Italian cities of Naples and Rome. The program is designed to provide a vivid introduction to the art and archaeology of the ancient Greco-Roman world, while savoring the cultural attractions and achievements of all of the important eras of later Roman and Italian history, from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance to the Fascist era to today.

It’s an incredible opportunity for students to travel to Rome and Naples, earn UB credits, and learn about Italy’s ancient history from an expert in the field! It is perfect for students who still need to fulfill an Arts or Humanities UB Area in their Global Pathway and/or could use CL 391: Art and Archaeology of Rome to fulfill a minor/major program requirement/elective.

The application deadline is October 15, 2019!

New Fall CL2 Course: ENG 204 Writing About the Environment

Posted by Tim on August 8, 2019 in Academics, General Education Requirements, UB Curriculum

ENG 204 Writing about the Environment

Prof. Elizabeth Mazzolini

TR 8-9:20am

This course will explore kinds of writing related to environmentalist expression and action, both activist and professional. Students will develop a rhetorical understanding of what makes various forms of communication effective, to be able to produce their own environmentalist communication and respond to that of others. We will consider film representations of responses to climate change, and analyze visual culture’s capacity to induce social change. Finally, students will produce a paper in a genre and on a topic of their own choosing. Engaging and effective writing is possible for anyone willing and able to devote work and attention to it; good writing about the environment is the result of curiosity, research, passion, and logical, critical thinking based on trustworthy evidence and expertise. These are the principles on which the class is based.
