KINGSVILLE (November 16, 2006) — Eight new courses have been approved for inclusion in the course schedule at Texas A&M University-Kingsville that are part of the university’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). These will join two already under way that aim to enhance learning by increasing student engagement in research, civic service and professional activities. The eight new classes will begin in the spring 2007 semester.

Two history courses will be added to the schedule, HIST 2321 and 2322. They are world civilization courses that will be integrated with teaching engagement. They will be taught by Dr. Dean Ferguson, associate professor and chair of history, and Dr. Brenda Melendy, associate history professor.

Dr. Michelle Johnson-Vela, associate Spanish professor, will teach SPAN 4320 which includes topics in Spanish literature. This will be a seminar involving autobiographies collected from migrant workers.

Dr. Pamela Doughty, assistant professor of health and kinesiology, will teach EDHL 2325, health promotion, and EDHL 3383, women’s health, as part of the new QEP program.

Dr. Nancy KingSanders, music professor, will teach MUSI 1123 which will involve a symphony orchestra that will include the local community as well as university students.

Dr. Yutaka Kono, assistant music professor, will teach two new QEP courses. MUSI 1132 will be about chamber music and MUSI 3132 will be a tuba euphonium ensemble.
