Course outlines

This is the second in a feature series on UVic courses, presenting examples of what our students are learning, and why

Philosophy 232: Moral Problems in Contemporary Society. Dr. Juliette Christie invites students from all veins of study to discuss morality as it pertains to humans in Western culture, world culture, and even in the animal world.

English 409: The Bible in English. Dr. Diane Tolomeo wants students to understand why the story of Adam and Eve and others from the Bible have continued to be so evident in literature from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and today. Her course tries to do just that.

Biology 335: Biology of Fish. The homework assignment for Dr. Tom Reimchen’s ichthyology class is simple: buy a fish and bring it home.
