Winter 2019 Luther Highlighted Courses

Be sure to check out the following Winter 2019 Luther Highlighted Courses before you register for classes:

BIOL 303-L01: Medical Microbiology - Dr. Nicole Hansmeier

The intent of this course is to provide an advanced introduction to pathogens and the concept of diseases. This course will showcase the nature of host-pathogen interactions, the intricate nature of pathomechanisms as well as the ongoing arms race between pathogens and their hosts. At the end of this course you will be familiar with pathogenic strategies to evade or overpower the human immune system, emergent diseases, and their epidemiology.

GEOG 232-L01: Geography of Recreation and Tourism - Dr. Louis Awanyo

The tourism industry is one of the world’s largest industries, accounting directly for 5 per cent of global gross domestic product (GDP), providing 235 million jobs worldwide, and generating direct revenues of $1.3 trillion US by 1.2 billion international tourists, according to the World Tourism Organization in 2015. Tourism in Saskatchewan generates $1.7 billion annually from tourist expenditures revenue, with visitors from outside Saskatchewan spending $500 million annually. Beyond its economic significance, tourism and recreation have social, cultural, and environmental implications for destination regions. The causes and the impacts of sex tourism, for instance, are a matter of great concern. This course will examine tourism and recreation from a geographical and an international perspective.

PHIL 274- L01: Philosophy of Law - Dr. Paul Simard Smith

Legal systems have substantive consequences on the life of everyone. However, when carefully reflecting on the nature of law and legal systems several moral and philosophical issues emerge that do not have obvious answers. This course introduces students to some of these questions, and the different answers that may have been proposed, including: What is law? What is the relationship between law and morality? What are the sources of legal principles? How should legal decision-makers deal with conflicting precedent? Several legal theorists have argued that some legal systems are biased against Indigenous peoples, as well as against people of certain races, genders, abilities, ethnicities and classes. How do such biases impact the legitimacy of law and how should people respond to such biases?
