Weekend Colleges at EOU

Weekend Colleges

Weekend College (WEC) courses are regularly offered onsite at EOU regional centers across the state. The credit value of the courses may vary, but most are 2 or 3 credits. WEC’s usually meet for one weekend on Friday evening and all day Saturday (Sunday, too, if it’s a 3 credit course), with additional pre- or post-coursework delivered through Canvas. Many disciplines offer these courses, and most courses may be used for major requirements and/or General Education graduation requirements. Contact your academic advisor with any questions about how these WEC’s might work best for you. Go to Mountie Hub for all individual WEC course details and to register!

SOC 374 – Food and Society *SSC – 37338 – 101

This course is designed to help students think about technology. Most of us are users of technology, but few have reflected on it sufficiently to examine it critically, its effects on our lives, our work, our environment, our consumption patterns, even our thought processes. Yet it affects every facet of our lives, and also affects the lives of people across the globe through a chain of production, consumption, and disposal. The class will focus on technology and history, culture, environment, scale, systems, change, and the future, with special emphasis on the `smart phone.
