COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:

KSU 1101 (First Year Seminar) as audit:  This course is for first-time first-year students designed to acquaint students with the campus and its programs.  The course fosters links between student needs and campus resources and emphasizes the development of college survival skills (study methods, time management and effective oral and written communication). Also aids students in identifying career interests and developing good relationships with students and faculty. Class assignments will be modified by AIAE to meet individual needs. 

HPS 1000 (Fitness for Living) as audit:  Emphasis on the importance of physical activity, nutrition, stress and weight management, and health-related fitness components. Topics will be developed with practical applications to one’s life-style including opportunities to assess selected fitness, nutritional and activity patterns, and to develop and participate in a personalized physical activity program.  Class assignments will be modified by AIAE to meet individual needs.

Campus activities/ study/tutoring:  Academy students will schedule this time with a mentor or Program Coordinator to work on assignments from class (KSU 1101 or HPS 1000) or use this time for another campus activity.

Arts in Society: Music as auditThrough an examination of the role of arts in society, and an in-depth study of musical works, this interactive course provides an understanding of the creative process and develops skills in creativity and critical analysis. Heightened perceptual abilities will be developed through class experiences and field visits to a variety of arts events in dance, theater, and visual arts, as well as in music. (Attendance at some events requires paid admission.)

Regents Writing as auditThe writing portion of the Georgia Regents’ Exam is intended to ensure that all graduates of the USG institutions possess certain minimum skills in writing.  RGTE 0199 helps students prepare for the exam.  Students learn to evaluate their own writing strengths and weaknesses and work on improving their writing skills so that they are able to write an essay meeting the Regents’ standards.  The Academy students will participate in this class with support provided by attending student mentors. They will advance individually based the skills they possess. They will NOT be required to take the Regents’ exam at the end of the course.
