American Studies students in Tulsa and Stillwater have a variety of course options available for Spring 2018. Visit the Course Offerings page, or CLICK HERE to get the complete list of what’s available where. Informational flyers for individual courses are available from the Course Offerings Page.
For Stillwater-based students I would recommend our AMST3950 Topics Course: Jewish Literature and Film and Dr. Lisa Hollenbach’s ENGL4320: Listening to Contemporary Poetry, which is about American poetry since 1950 with an emphasis on performance and sound culture studies.
In Tulsa, I would HIGHLY recommend my own AMST 3683 Intro to Digital Humanities, which will introduce students to digital communication via a project-based approach to skills acquisition. Translation: We’re gonna build digital stuff for one or more partner organizations! It’s hands-on learning with an outcome you can show off on the job market. All that’s required is a basic knowledge of computer skills, an ability to collaborate with others to achieve a common goal, and a willingness to tinker with technology.
NEED ADVICE? I (Dr. Takacs) will have drop-in office hours on Thursday, November 2 from 3-4:30 in Main Hall 2215 on the OSU Tulsa campus for those who have questions about course offerings or degree requirements. Feel free to stop by!
