Bachelor of Arts in Physics

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/physics-astronomy/ba-physics/

Our goal is to understand the physical universe.  The questions addressed by our department’s research and education missions range from the applied, such as an improved understanding of the materials that can be used for solar cell energy production, to foundational questions about the nature of mass and space and how the Universe was formed and subsequently evolved, and how astrophysical phenomena affected the Earth and its evolution.  We study the properties of systems ranging in size from smaller than an atom to larger than a galaxy on timescales ranging from billionths of a second to the age of the universe.  Our courses and laboratory/research experiences help students hone their problem solving and analytical skills and thereby become broadly trained critical thinkers. While about half of our majors move on to graduate studies in STEM, many find employment in the private sector in diverse situations ranging from financial analysts to physicians. Graduates of all our degree programs can be found in key positions regionally, nationally, and internationally.   In this way, our department is at the forefront of telling the academic story of the University of Kansas to people around the state and around the world.

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design

http://catalog.ku.edu/architecture/design/bfa/

Undergraduate Advising for Design Why is advising important?  Proper enrollment is critically important to a student's time in college ( every class is an investment ), but enrollment advice is only part of what an advisor can do to help. Advisors are guides to help students navigate the wealth of resources and opportunities at the University of Kansas. They are advocates for students in need, and they are liaisons between students and the institutions that serve them. Most importantly, advisors help students identify their ambitions and, from time to time, mentor them to effectively pursue those ambitions. In addition to Zac Shields, the professional advisor for Design students, faculty in KU Design are also available in these capacities, because we know that it takes a village to train some of the best Designers around! What are my responsibilities as a student? The Department of Design works tirelessly to support our students. That said, we believe that students do best when they take personal ownership of their education! Design students should keep the following general rules in mind: Ask questions. Your instructors and advisor do their best to keep up to speed, but they can best help you if you ask! Show up and give it your best. (see our policy on attendance, professionalism, and participation ) Keep it fair. Don't plagiarize. (see our policy on Academic Misconduct ) Design students should plan to meet with Zac Shields, the professional advisor for Design students, or a faculty advisor at least once per semester to discuss the current semester and plan for the next! General Availability: Zac is available by appointment Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays each week between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Students should schedule an appointment (recommended duration in parentheses) to discuss any of the following: Next-Semester Enrollment (30 minutes) Prospective Interest in Studying Design (30 minutes) Graduation Checks (30 minutes) Probation Action Plans (60 minutes) Financial Aid Appeals (60 minutes) For other questions, Zac is available by appointment or on a drop-in basis! Zac's drop-in hours are Mondays and Fridays each week from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Students are also welcome to call Zac at 785-864-2959 with questions and concerns, just as they would with an email or in-person drop-in. They should include their name and KUID number with their question(s)! Appointment Options: Zac is available to meet by appointment with students either in person (Marvin Hall room 200) or over the phone (785-864-2959) - whichever is best for them! How to Set Up an Appointment: Students are welcome to set up an appointment in any of these ways: Select a time on Zac's online calendar (recommended for current Design students). Email ZacShields@ku.edu and include a few days and general times in the next two weeks that work well for them. Call Zac at 785-864-2959 and state their name, KUID number (if they're a KU student), and a few days and general times in the next two weeks that work well for them. Students are welcome to meet with Zac Shields, the professional advisor for Design students, regardless of their year in school, admission status at KU, or admission status for KU Design.

Master of Arts in Museum Studies

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/museum-studies/ma/

These are exciting and challenging times for museums -- longstanding premises are being questioned, and many established practices are being reconsidered. Museum professionals today work in an environment far different than that of even a few years ago. Emerging technologies now allow museums to bring their collections and their programs to audiences well beyond the confines of museum buildings. With this expanded reach, museums are preparing for dramatic changes in the age, ethnicity, education, and economic status of their audiences. Exhibitions and public programs are evolving; more than ever, educators, curators, and designers are seeking ways to engage visitors in complex issues of broad concern. Behind the scenes, collection stewardship is being reevaluated in response to practical, political, and ethical concerns. Additionally, unprecedented scholarly attention is being directed toward the ways in which museums have acquired their collections, represented their subjects, and engaged with the public. In the midst of this transformation, long-standing assumptions about museums’ public value have been called into question, requiring museum leaders to craft new collaborations and community partnerships in order to survive.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Philosophy

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/philosophy/ba-bgs/

In philosophy we ask big, important questions.  While asking such questions is easy, answering them is difficult.  Because these questions are often abstract and vague, it is necessary to use precise reasoning and analysis to clarify what exactly it is we are asking.  Only then can we attempt to develop answers.

Bachelor of Arts in Astronomy

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/physics-astronomy/ba-astronomy/

Our goal is to understand the physical universe.  The questions addressed by our department’s research and education missions range from the applied, such as an improved understanding of the materials that can be used for solar cell energy production, to foundational questions about the nature of mass and space and how the Universe was formed and subsequently evolved, and how astrophysical phenomena affected the Earth and its evolution.  We study the properties of systems ranging in size from smaller than an atom to larger than a galaxy on timescales ranging from billionths of a second to the age of the universe.  Our courses and laboratory/research experiences help students hone their problem solving and analytical skills and thereby become broadly trained critical thinkers. While about half of our majors move on to graduate studies in STEM, many find employment in the private sector in diverse situations ranging from financial analysts to physicians. Graduates of all our degree programs can be found in key positions regionally, nationally, and internationally.   In this way, our department is at the forefront of telling the academic story of the University of Kansas to people around the state and around the world.

Bachelor of Arts in Spanish

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/spanish-portuguese/ba/

Spanish, the second most spoken language in the world with approximately 559 million speakers, is the official language in 21 countries. Moreover, according to the Instituto Cervantes , the United States ranks second behind Mexico in the number of Spanish speakers. Similarly, Portuguese, the official language in 9 nations, is spoken by approximately 210 million people over the world (the sixth most spoken language). Fluency in more than one language and an understanding of literary and cultural texts create educated citizens who can contribute to the betterment of our society.

Master of Arts in Design with Concentration in Design Management

http://catalog.ku.edu/architecture/design/ma-design-management/

The Department of Design advances the professional work of thoughtful, creative, and meaningful design to delight, inspire, and serve the needs of people. Design is the planning that lays the basis for creation and development of every object or system people use. Design programs train students to be problem solvers who consider the aesthetic, functional, and user-focused aspects of an object or a process. This requires considerable integrative research, thought, modeling, interactive adjustments, and redesign. The M.A in Design with a concentration in Design Management explores in depth the design function in business as an important integrative, and often interdisciplinary, area. The curriculum couples a rigorous, practical understanding of business with design’s natural capacity for handling diverse input, creative problem-solving, and human-centered understanding. The Design Management program is for prospective students who already hold design-related baccalaureate degrees and are seeking specialized study in management. Applicants should have at least 2 years of full-time professional work experience in design or a design-related field. The master’s student in design management should demonstrate an advanced ability to solve design problems, manage teams and processes, communicate clearly, and produce excellent goal-directed outcomes. The graduate will have completed significant course work and a thesis that documents independent discovery and research and will have passed an oral examination on that work. For more information about the program M.A in Design Management . The design department offers 3 Master of Arts degrees, which share a core curriculum. The M.A. in Design Management educates students in the theory, methods, and practices relevant to managing design in an organizational and business context.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Anthropology

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/anthropology/ba-bgs/

The Anthropology Department at the University of Kansas Anthropologists are concerned with the origin, history, and future of the human species. Our mission is to further our understanding of past and present human societies in their cultural, biological, and environmental contexts. As flows of people, ideas, money, and goods are crossing borders at unprecedented speeds, we are encountering human diversity now, more than ever before. The discipline provides students the knowledge and skills they will need to navigate these complex, multicultural, and rapidly changing worlds. Because we study what it is to be human, the field is one of the most wide-ranging of the academic disciplines. There are four main subdisciplines of anthropology: Archaeology is concerned with studying the human past based on the material culture left behind. Biological or physical anthropology is concerned with human evolution and variation. Linguistic anthropology focuses on the relationship between language and culture, as well as the documentation of the history and evolution of languages over time and across space. Cultural anthropology is concerned with the many ways humans organize themselves to live together, questioning past and present patterns of meaning and power relationships on local and global scales. Anthropologists across all of the subdisciplines apply holistic, comparative, and evolutionary perspectives and a range of methodologies in their research. We are committed to fieldwork and the application of this knowledge to helping people better understand one another. Why Study Anthropology? Students have many reasons for wanting to major in anthropology. Some are curious about the origins of the human species. Others are fascinated the diversity of human experiences in ancient and modern periods. Some students intend to pursue international careers, where they will use languages and work in cultural contexts very different from those in which they were raised. Others plan to work in museums collecting and curating human cultural resources. Some wish to pursue graduate training in one of the field’s subdisciplines, while others seek to use their anthropological training as preparation for professional schools, including law, medicine, public health, journalism, business, and engineering. There are many professions where the broad scientific, humanistic, and multicultural knowledge available through the study of anthropology can be useful—in education, healthcare, law, social work, business, human resources, public affairs, cultural resource management, or laboratory research. Anthropological Research Opportunities at KU Laboratory of Biological Anthropology (LBA):  Founded in 1975, the LBA was established as a research center of the University of Kansas. The LBA has supported graduate and undergraduate student research in biological anthropology, human genetics, and genetic epidemiology. Archaeological Research Center:  Located in historic Spooner Hall on the main campus, the archaeology laboratory offers research space and support to Anthropology faculty and graduate students, Archaeology staff, Museum Studies interns, affiliate curators and research associates and visiting scholars. Field Schools:  Anthropology faculty offer field schools in archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Undergraduates and graduate students have conducted independent and collaborative research in the United States, including Alaska; Mexico, Central, and South America; sub-Saharan Africa; and Asia.  For specific questions about our program, please contact us : The University of Kansas Department of Anthropology Undergraduate Program 1415 Jayhawk Blvd., 622 Fraser Hall Lawrence, KS 66045 E-mail:  kuanthro@ku.edu Phone: (785) 864-2630 Fax: (785) 864-5224 http://anthropology.ku.edu/overview-ba-anthropology

Master of Arts in Global and International Studies

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in History

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/history/ba-bgs/

Why study history? Who? What? Where? When? are the questions most commonly associated with the study of history. But these are only bits of information, bubbles on a multiple-choice test. They are not history. They are the building blocks of history, parts that when put together in the right way become history. History does not just record a sequence of events in the past. The practice of history examines change overtime and tries to understand the forces that contributed to those changes. Historians are most interested in questions that begin by asking ‘why’ or ‘how.’ These questions demand complex answers about who we are, how we have come to where we are, and what forces have shaped humanity through time. How did Spanish conquistadors manage to defeat the Aztec Empire? Why did Napoleon try to conquer Europe? How did the Industrial Revolution contribute to global warming? Why did Taiwan break off from mainland China? These questions demand complex answers. In trying to come up with those answers historians turn to the building blocks of who, what, where, and when to assemble the historical evidence in a way that answers the big question.  In a culture that places primary value only on living in the present, studying history can offer a rare foundation for critiquing or at least comprehending the current state of the world. Studying history helps you cut through the myths that cloud our understanding of ourselves and others, and offers a depth of comprehension that few other disciplines can promise. The following are some key characteristics of the history department and major: Useful : The study of history at the collegiate level emphasizes vital lifelong skills. These include critical thinking, analysis of qualitative and quantitative sources, research methods and practices, persuasive writing, and articulate speaking. The skills acquired through historical study can be transferred easily to any number of future careers and occupations. Graduates with KU History degrees have go on to become lawyers, business professionals, teachers, consultants, journalists, social workers, archivists, civil servants, and even medical doctors. Welcoming:  Few limits exist to what you may study. Politics, sexual relations, art, labor, literature, rebellion, war - the Department of History draws no boundaries between what you may and may not examine. To that end it also shares students and faculty with other programs such as African and African American Studies,  Women and Gender Studies, Environmental Studies, Global and International Studies, Indigenous Studies, and all of the geographical area studies programs. Flexible : Students must take only two required courses - a course on historical methods ( HIST 301 ) and a senior research seminar ( HIST 696 ) or honors thesis ( HIST 690 & HIST 691 ). Because few courses have sequential prerequisites, History is easy to take as a minor or as a second major. Worldly : History is excellent preparation for travel and work abroad, and around thirty majors yearly participate in KU’s  Study Abroad  program. The Department of History itself offers overseas opportunities, such as a pre-law institute at Cambridge University. Intimate :  Courses  in the department are usually small, and the larger courses always include trained Graduate Teaching Assistants to give individual attention and feedback. All students take at least two seminars of no more than fifteen students, and honors students work one-on-one with a faculty member. Further, students in the Department have organized movie nights, lectures, and informal get-togethers, so you are never lost in the crowd. Prominent:    Faculty  in the department are nationally and internationally recognized leaders in their field, and they bring this advanced knowledge to bear on their teaching. Resourceful:  Resources for history research at KU are rich. Watson and Anschutz libraries help make up a major research library collection, and the Spencer Research Library offers such resources as the Wilcox Collection on extremist politics, the University Archives, and major collections in British and Irish history, among others.

Bachelor of Arts in Slavic Languages and Literatures

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/slavic-languages-literature/ba/

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Sociology

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/sociology/ba-bgs/

The study of sociology provides valuable insights into the social institutions and processes that shape human behaviors, histories, and opportunities.  Sociologists focus on the actions, beliefs, values, norms, organizations, institutions, and other social forces that characterize a society and shape people's lives.  It directs attention to how the parts of society fit together as well as the causes and consequences of social change.  The insight gained from the study of sociology leads to a greater understanding of how formal and informal rules of society contribute to different opportunities and constraints for different groups of individuals, and how these change over time.  As a scientific discipline, sociology teaches students how to use empirical data to understand current social realities and act effectively on the central issues of our time. Few academic disciplines have such a broad scope and relevance.

The program length may vary, for example, for the student requiring prerequisites be completed or one pursuing additional thesis or course work. A master's degree from KU will, in most circumstances, satisfy the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association 's certification standards for continuing on to the clinical fellowship year. A certificate of clinical competence in speech-language pathology is awarded upon completion of a successful clinical fellowship.
