Humanities Class on Chinese Culture Image

Humanities 211: Survey of Chinese Culture is a class that fulfills the diversity requirement at TMCC and UNR.

Need a Humanities class for the Fall Semester? Do you want one that’s interesting and applicable to the real world today?

Three courses are still open for the upcoming term at Truckee Meadows Community College.

Take a captivating armchair trip to China in an overview of Chinese culture class. Or, learn about logical thinking to descramble complex problems. Another possibility to be a better communicator is to take an introduction to American Sign Language.

HUM 211: Survey of Chinese Culture

In this overview course, you will learn about the world’s oldest culture and the country with the largest population on earth – China. HUM 211 is offered on Mondays and Wednesdays at 3:30-4:45 p.m.

The Survey of Chinese Culture will introduce key events and concepts of China’s cultural development from roughly the time of the ancient Shang dynasty to the People’s Republic of China. China’s contributions to philosophy, literature and art will be discussed.

This is an essential class in today’s globalized world. The course satisfies the diversity requirement at TMCC and the University of Nevada, Reno. There are no prerequisites for this class.

PHIL 102: Critical Thinking and Reasoning

Philosophy is a discipline that can apply to daily decision-making. PHIL 102 takes place this Fall on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:30-1:45 p.m.

“Philosophy is nothing but common sense in a dress suit,” said an unknown author, as widely quoted in many websites.

This class is an introduction to logical thinking in everyday life, law, politics, science and advertising. Also covered will be common fallacies, and the uses of language, including techniques of persuasion.

The course fulfills a requirement for the Associate of Arts Degree, Philosophy Emphasis.

AM 148: American Sign Language IV

Become fluent in one of the most often used languages in the U.S. by taking American Sign Language (ASL). AM 148 is offered Mondays and Wednesdays at 7-8:15 p.m.

ASL fulfills the foreign language requirement for associate and bachelor’s degrees at TMCC and UNR. This course encourages the student to expand command of employing ASL on various everyday topics, leading to fluency. The prerequisite for AM 148 is AM 147.

For more information about these courses, contact the Humanities Department or email Dr. Thomas Cardoza.
