Good Afternoon,

Please add me in this course this semester on AUIS Moodle as an instructor, as I am teaching this course.

Thank you.

This capstone course provides students with an opportunity to work on real business problems. Students develop their own analysis and recommendations and complete the project with the delivery of a final report and presentation. Students are encouraged to help find the type of project and company that they believe will provide them with the best capstone experience.

This course is designed as an introductory economics course for students who want to understand the essentials of economics. It aims to teach the basic concepts and analytical tools of economics as well as economic logic in order to help students to understand the economic issues and events occurring around them. The course covers the basics of micro and macroeconomics. By the end of the class, students will gain a basic understanding of the main principles of economics, such as: how companies operate, how markets work, GDP and economic growth, indicators of economic performance, how government policies affect markets and economic performance, why prices go up and inflation rises, why recession and unemployment occur, and comparative advantage and trade. 

This course is the essential course in economics. It introduces students to the economic way of thinking, the means of understanding systems of social coordination, of understanding phenomenon of human action but not human design. It begins with such concepts as marginal and average, opportunity cost, sunk cost, economic and accounting profit, and trade-offs. These concepts culminate in the tools of supply and demand curves, and emphasis in this class is placed upon the use of these tools to gain insight into real world examples. The tools and analysis presented in this class will help to illuminate a wide range of social issues, from pollution to the pricing decisions of firms.

This course introduces students to the chronological scope of human history from 1450 to the

present. Students will examine the social, cultural, technical, economic, and political

transformations that have shaped world civilizations. The course emphasizes the development of

necessary university-level skills such as critical thinking and clarity of expression. Students will

continue to develop skills in critical reading of primary texts.

CIV 203 tackles important questions regarding the human condition within their historical context. It examines how perceptions, ideas and social organizations have changed over time as well as the ways in which people in different places and times have sought to answer certain ‘big questions.’ Such questions transcend ‘civilizational’ divides and are part of our common humanity; hence, this course takes a comparative approach. Students will engage with questions that are relevant to present-day dilemmas in their society.

This course will explore the political history of the two most destructive wars in history, World Wars One and

Two. Through a variety of primary and secondary sources, this course will show the causal link between the

wars, with particular attention paid to the rise of radical politics and authoritarian regimes in the inter-war years.

This course will examine the rise of communism and anti-communism, the Holocaust, and will highlight the

evolving role of ethnicity and nationalism as factors in both conflicts. This course counts as International

Studies major course.

This course will study philosophic and literary explorations of the nature of love and friendship through a close and careful study of an ancient text (Xenophon's Oeconomicus) and a modern novel (EM Forster's Howard's End). This course is a Humanities Core Option.

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to fundamental concepts of physical sciences:

Physics, Chemistry, Earth Science and Astronomy. This course is intended to develop the knowledge

and skills necessary for students who wish to continue their studies in engineering, the sciences, and

applied mathematics. The course builds on those mathematical and scientific method skills the

students already gained in previous courses.

This course is an (calculus-based) introduction to Newtonian Mechanics. The course topics include introductory kinematics, dynamics, elasticity, Newtonian gravitation, fluids, and vibrations and waves. PHYS 232 is also the first in a two-semester sequence required for all Engineering majors. There is a required weekly lab course which has to be taken in conjunction with this course.

This course aims to provide a firm understanding of the basic principles of electricity, magnetism and electrodynamics. The main emphasis is on electromagnetism as it is the underlying theory for modern physics. A secondary emphasis is on applications of electricity and magnetism and its role in circuits, electronics and laboratory instruments. At the conclusion of the course the student should be comfortable with the use of Maxwell's equations in integral form, and be aware of the differential equation form. The physical phenomena connected with producing electricity should be thoroughly understood. The associated laboratory will demonstrate some of the material covered in the lectures, familiarize the student with electrical measurements, techniques and introduce new materials.

I am teaching CSC 101 - section 3 in Spring 2020

The study of women’s roles and daily lives in ancient societies not only deepens our understanding of social history, but also focuses our attention on the categories of analysis we use for all aspects of historical inquiry. Asking about women’s roles in the military history of Archaic Greece, for example, expands the investigation from the battlefield to the wider socio-economic framework of the region. Considering women in the economic nexus of the Greek Hellenistic era draws our attention to gendered crafts such as weaving; in Classical Corinth, the role of female temple prostitutes illuminates the political-religious system. After having taken this course, students will be able to think critically about women and gender as a historical force in the ancient world. The framework of this course is the traditional historical survey with an emphasis on gender as a useful category of historical inquiry. 

This course aims to equip students with the ability to read and write from a critical stance. We will look at how to read “between the lines,” asking ourselves what that phrase means in the different contexts of the argument, the source text, the novel, and even the joke. Using the understanding of argumentation from the previous semester, students will continue developing their analysis skills of literature, defined broadly.
