INDS 430A Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar                       3 credits
          Complementary Medicine: An                        
          Interdisciplinary Inquiry                         

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/AUD  Complementary and
          alternative     therapies,     such     as
          acupuncture,      naturopathy,      herbal
          treatments,  meditation,  chiropractic and
          therapeutic  massage are  so interwoven in
          the fabrice of American healthcare that it
          may  no  longer  be relevant  to draw firm
          lines     between     complementary    and
          conventional      medicine,suggests      a
          nationwide   survey   conducted   by   the
          Stanford  Center  for Research  in Disease
          Prevention.  Many  complementary  medicine
          techniques  represent  different  ways  of
          thinking   about   wellness,   health  and
          disease,   which   are  deeply  rooted  in
          distinct    histories,   philosphies   and
          languages.  Health care involves knowledge
          and  practice  in  patient  care, research
          methods  and  basic economic  issues. This
          seminar  will  explore  how  complementary
          medicine  and  alternative  therapies  are
          being used, examine questions of efficacy,
          and explore healthcare policy responses in
          terms  of research funding and coverage by
          insurance  companies.  Students  will have
          the  opportunity  to meet  experienced and
          distinguished  practitioners  of different
          therapies.

INDS 430B Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar                       3 credits
          Interdisciplinary Perspectives on                 
          Leadership                                        

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  seminar
          will  explore  the role  and importance of
          leadership  both  its  general application
          and  in  specific  areas  of  interest  to
          individual    students.   A   variety   of
          techniques  will  be  employed  to uncover
          preconceptions    about   leadership,   to
          explore  cultural differences in the value
          placed  on  leadership, and to  help us in
          own  definition of  leadership. Throughout
          our  explorations  we  shall keep  an open
          mind about whether leadership is a good we
          should  pursue.  Whether you seek  to be a
          leader, to challenge one, or simply deepen
          your  concepts of leadership, this seminar
          will  provide  a foundation  for achieving
          your goals or for changing them.
