Students will enroll in either the mathematics or natural science course and the art course. Due to the program’s short duration and scheduling constraints, students cannot take both the math and natural science courses. Non-NTLS/Health & Human Sciences majors (after verifying with their associate dean & Prof. Strand) may take Professor Strand’s course to satisfy a core requirement.
This course promotes concept development and creative thinking. Visual problem solving and projects will be based on a concern for how each person examines, explores and ultimately interprets and re-creates to the world around them. Art 350 satisfies the creative arts core requirement for all LMU students.
Methods of Applied Mathematics
Herbert A. Medina, Professor of Mathematics
This course covers series solutions and special functions, orthogonal functions and Fourier series, partial differential equations and value boundary problems. Prerequisites: MATH 234 and 245. Math 355 is required for electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, engineering physics and applied mathematics majors. It is a major elective course for math and computer science majors and also counts towards the math minor.
Global and Community Health
Sarah L. Strand, Assistant Professor of Health & Human Sciences
This course deals with the health issues on a global level. The focus will be on all aspects of health in various communities. These communities are as narrow as the LMU campus and as broad as the world.
Topics include: health promotion, disease prevention, health systems, consumer health issues, communicable diseases and chronic health problems. Critical thinking will be a major component of this course and ethical and environmental considerations also will be addressed. NTLS 398 is an upper-division major elective for students with an NTLS major or a major in the Health & Human Sciences Department. Students in the Colleges of Liberal Arts, Communication and Fine Arts, Business and School of Film & Television should check with their associate dean to verify that this course satisfies the science and technology core curriculum requirement.
