LIB 302 Ree/al or Not Ree/al:The History of the Documentary as History (3)
Prerequisite(s): 21 Credit Hours toward Liberal Arts Major
Documentary films compel us to believe that they represent the real world as it really is.

Yet the documentary film employs powerful visual and auditory components not present in traditional, written histories to convince viewers to accept its particular point of view. Students in this seminar course will, while examining documentary film from its beginnings in the early 20th century to the present, learn the techniques used by documentarians to tell their stories. They will then analyze a series of films from the 1910's through the 21st century in order to address the overall course question.

NLP 105 Introduction to Linguistics for Computer Scientists (3)
In this class, we will explore common questions that linguistics answers such as: Where did English come from? Why do people have accents? If a baby hears two languages, will the baby be confused? The course will explore language structure (syntax), language in culture and use (pragmatics), word parts (morphology), and the sounds of human speech (phonetics and phonology). Expect to dive into fun projects, like teaching people to speak English, creating your own language, and finding out where you favorite words came from and why. This course provides necessary conceptual background for students interested in corpus linguistics and natural language processing and is a prerequisite to Introduction to Language and Computers.

NLP 106 Introduction to Secondary Research Methods (3)
Have you ever heard on the news "scientists have discovered" ...says who, where? Or what about a medical procedure or a drug...how do we know what kind of research has been done...is it safe? If you have ever wondered about these type of questions, this course is for you. We will learn how to find and interpret academic and scientific articles in order to find answers to real world questions. We will learn to think critically about things that may impact the value of the research, such as sample selection and researcher bias. We will also work together to write an article with the view of submitting it to a journal or conference for publication. Natural language processing and computational linguistics requires a deep understanding of the real-world problems at hand and whether the computer derived solutions indeed work as intended in the messy contexts of workplaces and society-at-large. This course will prepare students to be critical consumers of information about the problems they are trying to solve and is a prerequisite to Introduction to Primary Research Methods.

Using examples from technology and media we use every day, this course will overview basic concepts related to corpus linguistics (using a big collection of language to understand how language works) and natural language processing (understanding what language is trying to say and often using that information to make real time decisions). Working together, we will engage in hands-on activities and projects using corpus linguistics and natural language processing tools. We will also contemplate what all the advancements in technology mean to our daily work (are robots going to take over?) and privacy (who or what is listening to us and how and why?).

NLP 126 Introduction to Primary Research Methods (3)
Prerequisite(s): NLP 106
The first step to solving a problem, in computer science and other concentration areas, is narrowing the problem down and developing a plan of attack. Suppose we have a formal business or computer problem - and we determine that no one else has ever answered our exact question - how would we go about finding the answer? In this course you will learn how to develop and refine your own research question and conduct a mini-study using proper research theory and methods to look for answers. You will have the opportunity to explore pathways towards publishing or presenting your research.

Ethical issues related to death and dying will also be examined. The student taking this course should emerge from it with an increased awareness of the diversity of issues involved in death and dying that can be applied to managing one's own life journey, as well as to caring for others.
