Fall 2012 First-Year Seminars
We believe every student entering Mississippi State University should take
one course just for the fun of it during the first semester: a small class
taught by a great teacher eager to introduce you to something fascinating
in his or her field, with a wide variety of topics to choose from.
Our special First-Year Seminars carry one hour of course credit toward
graduation and can be used in almost any major. Each seminar is on a
different, interesting topic. You can take one that relates to your major, or
you can take one on an interesting topic outside your major that you might
otherwise never get to explore. Register for these seminars the same way
you register for your other courses. The only restriction is: Only entering
freshmen and new transfer students may enroll in these seminars, and no
one may take more than one.
This is a great way to start your career at Mississippi State. Research
shows that students who connect to the university in this way are more
likely to enjoy college and succeed at it. Mississippi State has long been a
leader nationwide in first-year experience (FYE) programs, and seminars
like these are offered at top colleges and universities across the country.
Browse through our offerings and become part of our 2012 FYE program
by taking one for fun.

Coaching/Sport Expertise: Learning From
the Best
CRN: 32858
Course Number: PE 1191
Instructor: Brad Vickers
Time: W - 1:00 - 1:50 pm Description: This course will provide students with an in-depth
analysis of the growth and development of coaches (both novices and
seasoned professionals). The course will provide valuable information
about what it takes to become an expert coach.
Ignorance is NOT Bliss!
Course Number: GE 1001
CRN: 31977
Time: M - 12:00 - 12:50 pm
Instructor: Amy Barton
Description: When concerns about science and technology arise,
the public needs accurate, responsible information. However, what
they often get is misinformation, which can lead to fear. Many
popular science fiction movies portray the public’s fear of “science
gone wrong” (Frankenstein, Night of the Living Dead, 28 Days
Later, The Day after Tomorrow, just to name a few). This course
explores what it means to explain scientific information clearly
and responsibly. We’ll look at some unfortunate examples of
misinformation and many good examples of communication from
writers, documentary makers, popular web sites, and experts from
many fields.
SEC Football: Beyond the Fi
el
d
Course Number: SLCE 1001
CRN: 33320
Time: T - 12:30 - 1:20 pm
Instructor: Steven Turner
Description: College football is
an integral part of higher educat
ion.
Now a multi-billion dollar indust
ry followed by millions, football
and
its importance in higher education
cannot be downplayed. This sem
inar
will focus on the issues of colleg
e football in today’s universities.
Th
e
dynamics between fielding a win
ning football team and fulfilling
the
central mission of academics wil
l provide a framework for discus
sions
regarding such issues as coaches’
pay, the bowl system, and paying
of student athletes. The fall 2012
college football season will provid
e
current topics relevant to these issu
es.
The Life of Pleasure: For and Against
Course Number: PHI 1001 Sec 02CRN: 33011
Time: R - 4:00 - 4:50 pm Instructor: Joseph Trullinger
Description: Everyone wants to be happy—but not everyone agrees about
what makes for a truly joyful life. Neither endorsing nor condemning,
this course explores the timeless idea that nothing in life is more valuable
than pleasure—the philosophy known as hedonism. Epicurean, JudeoChristian Biblical, and other philosophical approaches will be considered.
Is hedonism a life-affirming alternative to today’s dead end consumerist
culture? Think, learn, and make up your own mind!
Real World Ethics: An EDGE Initiative

ethical dilemmas of our day, including terrorism, genocide,
global
warming, the financial crisis, guns and violence, abortion,
and gay
marriage. Students will have an opportunity to engage in
critical
discussion of these issues. The emphasis is on developing
“moral
literacy,” the ability to make considered decisions of right
and
wrong. This course is offered as part of MSU’s EDGE Initia
tive.

Time: W - 12:00 - 12:50 pm
Instructor: William Kingery
Description: “What happened to the sunlight?” “When

Nano Exposed!
Course Number: CHE 1001
CRN: 30752
Time: R - 3:30 - 4:20 pm
Instructor: Priscilla Hill
Description: “Size does matter.” “Small is the new big.”
Studying
nanotechnology offers an adventure into exploring the small
est of
materials (1 billionth of a meter) to improve the largest of
structures.
Nanomaterials allow chameleons to change color, and nano
technology
allows development of smaller electronic components and
more
effective sunscreens for personal use. This seminar explores
fundamental
concepts, various applications, design and fabrication, and
ethics in
nanoscience. Since nanoscience is interdisciplinary in natur
e, it will be
co-taught by faculty from several departments: Chemical
Engineering,
Biology, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineerin
g. Students
in those departments may register for this seminar as CHE
1001 or BIO
1011 or ME 1001 or ECE 1001, respectively. Other stude
nts should
register for it as CHE 1001.

Time: T - 11:00 - 11:50 am
Instructor: Deb Mlsna and Joe Emerson
Description: This course is designed to help future applicants to
medical or pharmacy school. Topics will include study skills and
time management, course requirements and recommendations,
GPA expectations and extracurricular activities, how to prepare for
the standardized tests (MCAT/PCAT), and other topics related to
professional school admission. Guest speakers may include: local
physicians/pharmacists who can discuss career tracks; current
medical school students (study habits and time management in
professional school); and directors/ admission personnel at local
professional schools (admission requirements and interviews). This
course will fulfill the Paths seminar course (CH 1141) in the PreMed/Pre-Pharm Chemistry degree plans for students who need to

Gun Dogs: The Role of Canines in the
Pursuit of Wild Game
Course Number: WFA 1001
CRN: 33488
Time: R - 11:00 - 11:50 am Instructors: James A. Martin and Mark McConnell
Description: Game hunters have used dogs for centuries to
assist in finding and retrieving food for survival. However, the
philosophy of our use of canines is rarely explored. This course
will discuss the philosophy and history of domestication of canines
for use by hunters. We will explore the evolution of multiple dog
breeds and dog training for the pursuit of various species of wild
game. The objective of this course is to equip those who use dogs
for hunting and those who do not, with a basic understanding of
why, how, and when we use dogs to hunt wild game.

First-Year Learning Communities
Mississippi State University is proud to present 6 special First-Year
Learning Communities available to entering freshmen. In Learning
Communities, small groups of students take courses together that will
apply to University Core Curriculum requirements—in other words,
regular courses that you would have to take anyway, but with outstanding
teachers specially selected for this program, and a small group of
fellow students you can quickly become friends with and study with
together. Connections between the subject areas of the different Learning
Community courses are made, and the teachers of these courses work
together to bring you an especially enjoyable experience as you begin your
university career.
Most of the First-Year Learning Communities are open to any interested
students who can take them. Some are specially designed for students in
specific majors, such as Engineering, Communication, and Psychology.
For all students, you should check with your academic advisor from your
major department at Orientation to be sure that the courses in your desired
Learning Community can be used in your major. Usually, this will not be
a problem.
Some Learning Communities require that you apply for them ahead of
time and get permission to register. For most Learning Communities,
though, you enroll in them simply by registering for the courses—first
come, first served.
A couple of Learning Communities are residential—in other words,
everyone in the Learning Community lives in the same residence hall.
Most Learning Communities, however, place no restrictions on where you
may live, and students participate from all over the campus.
It is possible to participate in both a Learning Community described here
and also participate in one of the First-Year Seminars described in this
same brochure—no problem. However, you may participate in only one
Learning Community.
When registering for a Learning Community, it is essential
that you register for the exact course sections indicated in
the descriptions. If you do not do this, you will not be in the
Learning Community. Please be very careful about this.
