Lines 13--16: THE "HYBRID DUETS" of Connected Courses. Lines 13-14: the theme is the American Civil War. Both classes involve some face-to-face contact, but the majority of your time will be spent online. The purpose of the "duet" is to give you a strong general understanding of the events in American History that lead up to the Civil War (History class), and then to get you to write a competent research paper that expresses your ideas about your understanding of those events (Rhetoric class).
Line 15 is the course that is coordinated with the International Study & Travel Program. The purpose of the HUM 296 class is to give you a general familiarity with the culture, cuisine, history, etc., of the country we will visit during the Spring Break tours.
Line 16 is our "Winterim" between-semesters online course that satisfies your "third world" or "diversity" requirement. It deals with the cultures and peoples of the Far Pacific world.

2. Detailed Explanations
2.1 On-line courses: On-line students can sign up through Triton's Website at the on-line registration page, or with an advisor. On-line students are encouraged to sign up for all courses in our online packages, but it depends on the course. They don't always have to. A. The On-line classes are taken completely online. In some cases, a student may need only come on campus once-- to register, purchase books, etc. Other classes may require a student to come on-campus for a midterm and final, or not at all. A student will need to look at the individual course requirements; some of the course titles above are hot-links to those course requirement pages.
B The advisor should treat these on-line courses as they would any others, which is to tell the students to check the on-line course description page for details of particular course requirements. There is nothing different in registering students for an Undergraduate Center on-line course than there would be for any other on-line course

3. The Mission of the Undergraduate Center:

is a complex and multi-faceted “Learning Community,” in both the classic sense, and in the most ground-breaking uses of the phrase. Since 1975 the mission of the Undergraduate Center has been to offer interdisciplinary courses in Triton's classrooms and online. From 1994 to the present, we have also offered international educational tours with interdisciplinary components that are consistent with our mission. The materials and readings in one class are "connected" to readings and reflected in the materials of other Undergraduate Center classes. Some assignments, lectures, and exams apply to more than one class. The faculty collaborates, plans together, and co-ordinates syllabi. In some cases, a student may not need to sign up for more than one U.C. on-line course at the same time. The faculty encourages this, however, so that full advantage may be taken of the interdisciplinary components of each course. This enriches and deepens the educational process, and economizes time and efforts for those taking other associated interdisciplinary Undergraduate Center courses simultaneously or in later semesters. The courses are neither harder nor easier than courses taught in other departments, but they are taught with the following classic features of an interdisciplinary learning community: Undergraduate Center
● Team teaching/guest lecturing,
● Integrated Curriculum,
● Extensive joint planning,
● Common “Themes” or “Thematic Units” shared by more than one course
● Joint use / sharing of assignments and evaluations across disciplinary boundaries.
