ENGL 215: Writing Matters: English Literature and Academic Interpretation II
This course, along with its complement, Writing Matters: English Literature and Academic Interpretation I, builds students' skills as critical readers and writers through the discipline of English. Students learn to be sophisticated readers of literature, and to examine the assumptions and implications of a wide array of texts as well as culture. The courses develop students' sensitivity to language use and their appreciation of the relationship between form and content. Students will learn about the range of literary genres, periods, and geographic locations, as well as specific terms and devices for reading narrative poetry, short stories, and two long works (novel or drama). Building from the complement course, assignments will complete stages three and four of a cumulative research paper methodology. Through interpretative practices, we are able to examine the literary foundations of our worldviews and look on the world, ourselves, and others anew.

HIST 204: The West and the World, 1500-Present
This course seeks to introduce students to the broad contours of world history since 1500. Although aspects of the history of the "West" and the "World" will be treated as discrete entities, a particular concern will be to explore the complex interactions between the two. The course will begin with the period from the European encounter with the Americas and conclude with an examination of war and terrorism in the 21st century Middle East.

THEO 370: All Things - Theology of Creation
A study of the Christian theology of creation which addresses the issues of: the integrity of the universe as God's creation; humankind's place and task in creation; the honouring and care of creation as intrinsic to knowledge of God as Creator and the world as God's creation. Special attention will be paid to how the central Christian doctrines of the Trinity, Christology, the imago dei and the eucharist shape the theology of creation, and to how such a theology influences and is influenced by the aims and practices of environmental stewardship.
