BUS 399 – Negotiation – (3 units) – Professor Marc Fawaz
This course will explore the theory and practice of negotiation. The aptitude to negotiate successfully rests on a combination of analytical and interpersonal skills. Negotiators cannot develop promising strategies without a deep understanding of the context of the situation, the structure of the negotiation, the interests of the other parties, the opportunities and barriers to creating and claiming value on a sustainable basis, and the range of possible moves and countermoves both at and away from the bargaining table. Interpersonal skills are important because negotiation is essentially a process of communication, relationship and trust-building (or breaking) and mutual persuasion. Learning objectives are to give students an introduction to key questions and concepts in the study of negotiations (e.g., components, functions & scope, actors, phases, requirements for and obstacles to effectiveness) and an understanding of how different factors and contexts can influence the negotiation process and its outcome (such as the nature of the issues, power, ethics, technology, third-party intervention, culture, and violence).
PHY 399 – Medical Imaging Physics – (4 units) - Professor John Kenney
This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the scientific foundations and practical implementations of modern medical imaging technologies including ultrasound, X-ray, computer aided tomography (CAT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The class will utilize laboratory exercises, special guest lectures, and field trips to augment the lecture in exploring pertinent historical aspects of, state-of-the art advances in, limitations and risks of, and possible future directions involving medical imaging science. Moral and ethical issues associated with medical imaging will be investigated in Christian context. Course prerequisites: CHE 221-222 and PHY 211-212 or consent of the instructor.
