Such dishonesty includes cheating on examinations, plagiarism, ghostwriting,andfalsifyingofcialinformationrequestedbytheuniversityconcerningone’sacademic background or status. According to Webster’s Third New International Dictionary, plagiarism means “to steal and pass off as one’s own the ideas and words of another; …to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.” You commit plagiarism whenever you use a source in any way without indicating that you have used it. If you quoteanythingatall,evenaphrase,youmustputquotationmarksaroundit,orsetitofffromyourtext;ifyousummarizeorparaphraseanauthor’swords,youmustclearlyindicatewherethe summary or paraphrase begins and ends; if you use an author’s idea, you must say that you are doing so. In every instance, you also must formally acknowledge the written source from which you took the material. Ghost writing is preparing work for another or having another prepare one’s own work.When a graduate student is found to be in violation of this provision, academic penalties may beprescribedbytheinstructorofthecourseinquestion,including—butnotrestrictedto—therequirementofadditionalwork,theassignmentofafailinggradeontheworkinquestion,orafailing grade for the entire course.

Each panel selected to hear an individual case will consist of one student member, one administrator, one faculty member and the chair, who is non-voting, who will preside at meetings and who will see that parties involved are given a fair and impartial hearing. The chair may take part in the questioninganddiscussion.Onceapanelhasbeenselectedallofthosevotingmembersplusthe chair must be present in person to hear the case.Grievance CommitteeThe Grievance Committee of the university is available to ensure that student rights are protected. The entire Grievance Process, Grievance Procedure diagram and Appeal Procedure are available on the web at who believe they have been aggrieved according to the specications in the“Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities” should utilize the following process toresolve that grievance.

For a 3-credit internship, the basic expectation is that the student will average about 10-12 hours per week over the course of the semester, about 150 hours total. Independent study is graded with the traditional letter grade while an internship is graded on asatisfactory(S)/unsatisfactory(R)basis.The basic procedure for setting up an internship or independent study is similar. The student contacts a faculty member or supervisor to develop a proposal that describes the topic of the work,theexpectedprocedures,work&timetable,andthenalresult.Theproposal,alongwithacoverform(availableinthegraduateofce),issubmittedtotheDirectorofGraduateStudiesfor review and approval.Students may take up to 6 credits of internship or up to 6 credits of independent study as part of their degree, but may not take more than 9 credits total of both categories.Docents-in-Training receiving graduate credit: Docents-in-training at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts have the opportunity to apply to receive up to 6 graduate credits in the Master of Arts in Art History program as non-degree students.

In the Orff approach, teachers create an environment in which children become active, creative participants in their musical education. They experience music through movement, song, speech, and instrument playing, which prepares them for music reading and writing. Independent musicianship is developed through a teaching process that includes imitation, exploration, improvisation, composition, and literacy.In this program, students will: • sharpen performance skill necessary for achieving artistic ensembles;• gain insights into historical and contemporary Orff ensemble literature through analytical study and orchestration;• improve musical competency;• broaden understanding of music history, theory, and literature;• examine pedagogical uses of Orff media to teach music concepts, develop musical ideas and skills, and facilitate ensemble performance with children of all ages and ability levels;• discover new applications for existing expertise;• experience and explore strategies for developing successful improvisation and composition experiences; and• articulate ways in which Orff Schulwerk serves the common goals of the music education profession.Music Education Core CoursesStudentsarerequiredtotakethefollowing17semestercredits.GMUS600 IntrotoScholarship&ResearchMethodsinMusicEducation(3cr.)GMUS601 TeachingandLearning(3cr.)GMUS608 FoundationsofMusicEducation(3cr.)

Upon completion of Catholic Thought and Culture I, students will have a sense of the depth, complexity and beauty of the Catholic intellectual tradition, as it has developed up to medieval times.CSMA501 CatholicThoughtandCultureII(requiredforMAdegreeandjointdegree),3cr.This course provides an interdisciplinary exploration of the wisdom of the Catholic tradition expressed through works of intellect and imagination, from the late medieval period up to contemporary times.

Particular attention is given to the scope and integrity of the teachings of the Catholic Church with regard to the inter-relationship of the four sections of the “Catechism”, namely, the Profession of Faith, the Sacraments, Life in Christ and Prayer. Explicit attention will be given to ways in which Catholic teachings are manifested in the classic texts and works of art, such as those examined in Catholic Thought and Culture I and II.CSMA 514 Augustine’s City of God, 3 cr.Augustine began writing City of God in 413 AD. His intention was to defend the Catholic church againstitspagancritics,whoheldChristianityresponsibleforthesackofRomebytheGothsin410.Bythetimehehadnished,morethanadecadelater,Augustine’sworkhadgrownintoacomplexengagementoftheentiretyofpaganRomanthoughtandculturethroughamasterfulinterweavingofScriptureandthefoundationalworksofpaganRomanculture.Thiscoursewillconsist of a close reading of the whole of City of God, with particular focus on this interweaving of political, historical, philosophical, and theological themes that have made Augustine’s work second only to the Bible in the shaping of Western Christianity. CSMA 515 John Henry Newman, 3 cr.Called by the Church historian, Jaroslav Pelikan, “the most important theological thinker of modern times,” Cardinal Newman is perhaps best known for his work on university education. Hismostsignicantintellectualwork,however,wasintheareaofdevelopmentofdoctrine,the relations of faith and reason, and the role of authority and conscience in the life of the Church. This course considers the contemporary relevance of Newman’s thought in each of these areas and examines his sermons and devotional writings, works which led T. S. Eliot to refer to Newman as one of the two greatest homilists in the English language.

CSMA517 ThomasAquinas,3cr.In some regards the 13th century was a barbarous age, pre-scientic and sometimessuperstitious, torn by conicts and wars. At the same time it was an era of magnicentintellectual and cultural achievement, a time in which cathedrals were built and universities founded.StThomasAquinas(1224-1274)wasamanofhistimebuthiswork,likethatofmanyof his contemporaries, transcended his century. Today Thomas is remembered principally for his Summa theologiae, the textbook on theology that he wrote for beginning students and for his numerous careful commentaries on the work of Aristotle, the Greek philosopher. Even so, as important as the Summa is, about a third of Thomas’s extant work consists of commentaries onScripture.Anothermajorportionofhiswork,muchneglected,consistsofeffortstodefendthe teachings of Catholicism against its critics, both internal and external. The focus of this course will be to explore critical elements of Thomas’s thinking as a theologian in three general areas: systematic theology, biblical commentary, and apologetics. CSMA 519 Topics in Catholic Studies and Theology, 3 cr.This course considers particular topics in the area of Catholic studies and theology. Although the topics will vary, the courses will have both an aesthetic foundation and an interdisciplinary focus.CSMA519 ConversationsonReligionandCulture,3cr.Christian communities have always understood, intuitively at least, that culture has a powerful impact on human persons, who are made for the common life of society. For many centuries the Catholic tradition has taken a lively interest in expressions of Christianculture—architecture,art,andliterature—butrarelyreectedontheconceptof culture itself. This changed in the 20th century as many Catholic thinkers, laity and clergy alike, began to examine the relationship between religion and culture more deeply.OneoftheleadersofthisnewinquirywasChristopherDawson(1889-1970),the preeminent English Catholic historian of the century. Dawson wrote extensively on the nature of culture and on topics related to the importance of Christian culture to Westerncivilization.ThiscoursewillacquaintthestudentwithsomeofDawson’sworkin this area but at the same time put Dawson in “conversation” with a number of other importantvoices,modernandcontemporary,suchasJacquesMaritain,HilaireBelloc,JosefPieper,TSEliot,JosephRatzinger,DorothySayers,MaryAnnGlendon,BarbaraWard,andSimoneWeil.Topicsmayincludesecularization,education,therestorationof Christian culture, and technology, among others.

CAS Graduate Student Handbook and Course Catalog | 81CSMA 521 Augustine’s Confessions, 3 cr.St. Augustine’s Confessions is one of the most enduring and inuential works of Christianliterature, one that speaks about the relation between God and man in an unprecedented way. Augustine makes his confession to God by telling the story of his life, and he casts the mysteries of theology in terms of his own experience. As we explore the philosophical, theological, and literary dimensions of this remarkable work, we will consider the particulars of Augustine’s storyandthewaythoseparticularssetthestageforAugustine’sreectiononcreaturesandtheir Creator, memory and time, and sin and grace. CSMA 522 Virtue, 3 cr.Understanding virtue is essential for understanding and speaking about human activity. St. ThomasAquinaswillprovidethefoundationalformulationsofthetheologicalvirtuesoffaith,hope,andcharity,andthecardinalvirtuesofprudence,justice,courage,andtemperance.Wewill strive to see how understanding the virtues illuminates the fundamental reality of the human personandprovidesuswithavocabularyforanalyzingandspeakingaboutthemoralactionsof the human person. Works by other thinkers will complement readings from St. Thomas. We willalsoengageworksofction.Thesewillprovideopportunitiestoconsiderthevirtuesintheconcrete, and, in turn, the reality of the virtues will help us think more substantively about works of literature. CSMA 525 Philosophical Foundations for Theology, 3 cr.Since Christianity encountered the secular philosophies of the ancient world, theology has been shaped and inuenced by philosophy. Christian theologians have had to respond tochallenges to their doctrines brought by philosophers, and they have often adopted the conceptual frameworks and technical language of philosophy. As a result, even though theology and philosophy are distinct disciplines, a knowledge of philosophy is really necessary in order to understand theology. This course aims to provide a basic understanding of the philosophical concepts that constitute much of the foundation of Catholic theology, especially in the areas of metaphysics, epistemology and ethics. Special attention will be given to Platonic and Aristotelian schools of thought.CSMA 529 Topics in Catholic Studies and Philosophy, 3 cr.This course considers particular topics in the area of Catholic studies and philosophy. Although the topics will vary, the courses will have both an aesthetic foundation and an interdisciplinary focus.CSMA 529 Conscience, Freedom, & Destiny, 3 cr.Intheintroductiontohisbookonthevirtues,RomanoGuardiniwrites:“Thereisonething that Plato’s philosophy has made clear once and for all; he showed that absolute values exist, that these can be known and, therefore, that there is such a thing as truth.

In short, it involves a formation and tuning of conscience within the antiphonal relation between nature and grace: to the Good, True, and Beautiful – the fabric from which nature is

It was a period that witnessed the birth ofthemodernstate,theearlyformationofmarketeconomies,thebirthoftherstEuropeanuniversities, and much more. In short, it was a world in need of a saint, like St. Francis, who could channel its wild energy without dampening it. After a brief survey of the political, economic, and religious transformations of Europe from the 11th-13th centuries, we will give our attention to St.Francis’ownwritings,thewritingsoffellowFranciscans(especiallyThomasofCelanoandSt.Bonaventure,theprincipalbiographersofSt.Francis),andworksbycontemporaryhistorians,both Franciscan and non-Franciscan for other perspectives on the way in which Franciscan charisma encountered the world.

For the WestthisbeganwiththeGreeks,whosetinplace,somevecenturiesbeforeChrist,themainaspects of a tradition that lasted, with signicant developments,up until very recent times.This course will trace that tradition, using both primary and secondary source material, and will include: its origins in fth-centuryBC Greece; its universalization during the Hellenisticperiod; its encounter with Christianity in the Patristic era; its Christian instantiation under the Carolingian Empire; the great Medieval educational synthesis and the rise of the University; thedevelopmentofRenaissancehumanismandtheRatioStudiorumoftheJesuits;Newman’sclassic expression of the tradition in The Idea of a University; and the great challenge to that tradition and change that has taken place during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. CSMA 539 Topics in Catholic Studies and History, 3 cr.This course considers particular topics in the area of Catholic studies and history. Although the topics will vary, the courses will have both an aesthetic foundation and an interdisciplinary focus.CSMA 539 Crisis in the Church, 3 cr.The story of the Church is different in important ways from the stories of any other societyorinstitution.Nootherhumaninstitutionhassurvived,andourished,forsolong and in the face of so many challenges. But the Church is not simply an institution, though it has some institutional characteristics. It is a distinct society that penetrates and engages secular societies, that exists within them without being subordinated to them or absorbed by them. Indeed, the Church can never be separated from secular societies. It always takes root in the soil of a pre-existing culture and seeks to modify it so that it conforms more closely to the vision of the Gospel. At the same time, it is nourished but also shaped, even distorted, by that culture. Drawing on the work of ChristopherDawson,JacquesMaritain,andotherprominentCatholicthinkers,wewillexplore what Dawson called a history “beneath the surface” of secular society, as the ChurchhasstruggledtoliveouttheGreatCommission(Mt28.19-20).Thisisastoryofheroismandsuccessbutalsoofcorruptionandfailure,ofdelitybutalsotemptationand distraction. We can learn from the strengths and weaknesses and also come to appreciate how we may be prone to both in the future. The structure of the course will follow the insight that the story of the Church, from its origins in the Apostolic Age to the modern period, can be understood as a series of cycles with a common pattern of creativity, achievement and retreat. Students may expect to complete the course with anawarenessandunderstandingofsomethemajorpersonalitiesandevents,secularand ecclesial, that have shaped the life of the Church.CSMA 542 Dante’s Divine Comedy, 3 cr.In this course, we will read and discuss Dante’s masterpiece, The Divine Comedy. While we will situate the poem in history and will pay close attention to the poem’s engagement with political and theological controversies, our main task will be to attend to the language, structure, and imagery of Dante’s poem itself.

In this course we will look at the biblical depictions of the end of the world as well as Catholic doctrinal sources on the end times. We will then look at a number of Catholic apocalyptic tales including but not limited to: RobertHugh Benson’sThe Lordof theWorld (1907),Walter M.Miller, Jr.’sACanticlefor Leibowitz(1959), and Michael O’Brien’s FatherElijah(1996).CSMA 549 Metaphysical Poetry, 3 cr.The ambitious lyric poetry of late 16th-17th century England is known as “metaphysical” poetry because of its breadth and ambition. This poetry is able to link anything to anything else, and everything to God. The metaphysical poets wrote about love: friendship, marriage, sex, and the soul’s love of God. They often did this all in the samepoem.TheyalsowroteatatimeofreligiouscrisisinEnglandastheReformationunsettled everything. They wrote about that too and often in the same poems. This course will read selected poems of Donne, Herbert, Crashaw, Marvell and others with an eye to how their poetry weaves themes of love and faith together in a time of religious and spiritual crisis.CSMA 549 Shakespeare’s Christian Imagination, 3 cr.This course will examine Shakespeare’s use of Christian imagery and theology across four of his most enduring plays: King Lear, Othello, The Winter’s Tale, and The Tempest. We will supplement our close reading and discussion of Shakespeare’s text with

Drawing on philosophy, theology, poetry, music, and the visual arts, the course examines three key moments in Mary’s life as mother: the Annunciation, the Nativity, and the Stabat Mater. These culturally and historically diverse depictions of Mary set the stage for an investigation into the meaning of her role, within Catholicism as a whole and within the lives of individual Christians.

Some dominant groups use language to express in-group belonging and to express exclusiveness, whether intentionally or unintentionally. This course explores the intersections of language, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, ability and disability, and identity by focusing on various groups in the U.S. Among other things, we will examine how Americans use language to express their distinctive cultural identities within theU.S.andwewillexaminehowdominantgroupsattimesmarginalizeothersusinglanguage.Through examples drawn from the experience of ethnic groups such as Hispanics and Latinx people,AsianAmericans,andAfricanAmericans;andmarginalizedcommunitiessuchLGBTQIApeople, women, and people with disabilities, students will explore broader questions suchas how language shapes our perceptions and feelings of belonging.
