    GER 114 – Learning a Foreign Language
  • Cross Listed
  • The goal of the course is to provide students with important tools to help them become successful foreign language learners. Students will become familiar with basic elements of language such as parts of speech and the pronunciation of new sounds as a means of enabling them to anticipate and effectively deal with problems in pronunciation, vocabulary building, and sentence formation that often come up in foreign language study. They will also learn about the intertwining of culture and language, such as how expressions of politeness and body language differ across cultures. They will also be exposed to different language teaching and learning styles, typical mistakes language learners make, and strategies for making language learning more effective. This information will be presented in the context of the wide variety of languages taught at the University of Arizona

  • Tier 2 Humanities
  • Honors Contract
  • Grand global challenges require broad thinking. For centuries, philosophers, theologians, playwrights, and poets writing in German have been grappling with the deeper questions of the human condition. From theologian Martin Luther to the political theorist Hannah Arendt, from the philologist Friedrich Nietzsche to the dancer Pina Bausch, German thinkers and dreamers have been exploring the possibilities and limitations of the human intellect in action. This course takes a wide-angle look at what German-speaking intellectual history can tell us about the world in 2013, and about the complex cultural and social history leading up to today.

  • Tier 1 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • This course explores the human ability to acquire and maintain two, three, or more languages over a lifetime (i.e., the ability to become multilingual). It examines the factors that contribute to successful language learning and maintenance and that counteract language forgetting and loss. It discusses ways (methods, approaches, and strategies) through which languages can be taught in child- and adulthood, in family and school settings, and demonstrates the importance of multilingual and multicultural skills in a variety of professions. At the end of the course, participants will have gained insights that will help them make informed decisions with respect to their own language learning and use while in college, in their professional careers, and in their (future) families.

    GER 160A1 – From Animation to Zombies: The Ethics, (Bio)Politics and Aesthetics of Defining Life
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 1 Traditions and Cultures
  • Honors Contract
  • This course invites you to probe the diverse definitions of one of the most central terms of human existence: "life." In order to understand and critically examine what constituted life in diverse contexts and times, and how these definitions have been shaping the way life is treated, we will engage with different schools of thought and a variety of materials and media that help us determine the ethical, (bio)political, and aesthetic consequences of defining life and its limits. The course is divided into three overarching topics: I) Life and Art: Problems of Representation and Animation; II) Life and the Politicized Body: Biopolitical Considerations; and III) Life and Ethics: The Value of Life and Its Future. Each of the topics consists of several two-week modules that are guided by central questions, such as Does life imitate art? or How do we regulate human life?
