          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  fabric 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
          distant    histories,   philosophies   and
          languages.  Health care involves knowledge
          and  practice  in  patient  care, research
          methods  and basic  economics issues. This
          seminar will explore how complementary 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.    Permission   of   department
          required.

INDS 430B Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar Nuclear               3 credits
          Issues in a Age of Terrorism                      

(PermReq) Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  course
          examines   nuclear   energy   and  nuclear
          weapons  issues in the  post-Cold War era.
          With  the end of the Cold War, many people
          assumed  that  nuclear-related  challenges
          were  a thing of the past. Contrary to the
          optimistic  predictions of  many analysts,
          the  post-Cold War world has generated its
          own  nuclear  dangers,  some  familiar and
          some     new.    Nuclear    proliferation,
          environmental    degradation,    and   the
          possibility  of nuclear terrorism are atop
          the  international  security agenda  as we
          move  into the 21st  century.  This course
          will  cover both the military and civilian
          dimensions  of nuclear power. It will look
          at  contemporary  nuclear issues  from the
          vantage   point   of   social,  political,
          strategic,     economic,    and    ethical
          perspectives.   Crosslisted   w/POLI  489,
          Selected     Topics    in    International
          Relations.
