I missed the last two lab assignments, but I guess I proved I knew the material on the final. I am pleased with the end result of this class. I really feel like I grasped the material, and I have decided that even though it is not required for my major, I am going to continue my computer programming journey this upcoming semester. Here is my (almost) current schedule:

MCMPSC 213 Programming with Visual Basic
Concepts in programming a computer using the language called Visual BASIC. Emphasis on structured design, graphical user interfacing, and documentation. Includes user screen development, control constructs, array processing, elementary file processing, and database access. Extensive interaction with computers will be expected.

MTHETR 100 Introduction To Theatre Arts
Investigation of the process of the collective are of the theatre, the role of the actor, director, playwright, designer, technician and audience. Survey of the origins of the theatre, its development as an art form, and the social, political and cultural implications of this art form at various points in history.

MTHETR 160 Fundamentals of Acting
Prepares the student to apply basic acting theory to performance. Develops the skills of interpretation of drama through acting. Emphasis on skills for performance: memorization, stage movement, vocal production, and interpretation of text.

MENGL 103 Adv Comp & Critical Thinking
Advanced composition course that focuses on the techniques and principles of argumentation. Examines style, diction, inference, evidence, reasoning, and rhetorical strategies of written argument. 8,000 word writing requirement, at least 6,000 of which must be in essays that have a developed thesis

MPSYCH 103 Introduction to Neuroscience
Introduction to the biological basis of behavior. Emphasis on divisions of the nervous system, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, psychopharmacology as applied to the understanding of perceptual processes, psychoactive drugs, movement, regulation of hunger and thirst, sexual behavior, sleep, learning and memory, language, emotion, reward and stress, psychopathology. Aproprate for all students interested in the behavioral and biological sciences.

I am also going to take choir and probably band again. This is going to be a busy busy year. I am very much looking forward to it. If I feel like I can not keep up, the first class I am going to drop is the programming class. The others are needed in order for me to graduate and transfer.
