2023-2024 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

BUS-3910 International Business–Fa, Sp 3 hours This course is a broad overview of how business is different in a global setting by introducing key concepts, terms, trends, theories and organizations. Each group will put these foundational principles into practice by developing a country analysis and business plan to launch a fast food restaurant into a new country. Additionally, students will consider how to use the principles of Business As Mission (BAM) to achieve spiritual objectives as well as profit. (Fee: $20) BUS-4150 3 hours Advanced Business Analytics and Visualization This course will explore the field of data analytics by covering state-of-the-art modeling, analysis, and visualization techniques. The course will emphasize the importance of understanding the underlying data, validating the data, applying a meaningful analytic to the data, and only then visualizing the data. The course will discuss practical challenges involving complex real-world data and include several case studies and hands-on work with a modern data analysis and visualization package. Crosslisted with ITM. Prerequisites: BUS-2170 Introduction to Business Analytics. (odd years) BUS-4420 2 hours Business Ethics and Social Responsibility–Fa, Sp Ethics asks questions about what goals one should pursue and what actions are appropriate in attempts to achieve these goals. The course examines alternative frameworks for analyzing difficult situations. Social responsibility refers to business decision making linked to ethical values, compliance with legal requirements, and respect for people, communities, and the environment. Ultimately, the course will deal with how our biblical worldview defines and drives the choices we face in the business world. Open only to seniors in business administration. Must be taken at Cedarville University; transfer or transient credit for this course will generally not be accepted. Conducting (CDMU) CDMU-2600 Introduction to Conducting–Fa 2 hours The basic technique of the conductor’s art: score reading, conducting patterns, interpreting, cueing, rehearsal procedures, and stylistic conceptualization. Prerequisite: THMU-1210 Music Theory I or permission of instructor. (Fee: $20) CDMU-3610 Choral Conducting–Sp 2 hours Concentrated focus upon the choral conductor’s stylistic gestures and verbal communication as they impact ensemble intonation, diction, tone, blend, and balance. This course emphasizes diagnostic listening, problem solving, observation of professional conductors, the conducting of larger choral/ instrumental works, and student rehearsal of various music department choral ensembles. Prerequisite: CDMU-2600 Introduction to Conducting or permission of instructor. (Fee: $20) CDMU-3620 Instrumental Conducting–Sp 2 hours Designed to take the student beyond basic conducting techniques and present the special characteristics of instrumental conducting. The student will develop skills in rehearsal technique and score analysis while learning to conceptualize musical fundamentals such as tone, intonation, balance, rhythmic ensemble, and interpretation. Prerequisite: CDMU-2600 Introduction to Conducting or permission of instructor. CDMU-3630 Choral Methods–Fa 2 hours Further development of conducting skills with special emphasis placed upon the organization of a comprehensive school choral curriculum. Rehearsal strategies and vocal techniques are discussed and practiced as they apply to choirs of all levels and voicings. Prerequisite: CDMU-2600 Introduction to Conducting or permission of the instructor. (Fee: $20) CDMU-4990 Independent Study in Conducting 1–3 hours Independent and intensive study in a particular area of conducting for individual students who demonstrate special interests and ability. Prerequisite: CDMU-3620 Instrumental Conducting; CDMU-3630 Choral Methods; or equivalent. Chemistry: General Education (CHEM) Except where noted, general education courses are designed to meet the general education requirements for graduation. These courses will not count toward graduation requirements for majors found in the School of Science and Mathematics unless they are specifically listed in the curriculum requirements for a major. A student majoring in science or mathematics may take these courses only as electives. However, any course listed for a science or mathematics major or minor may also count toward fulfilling general education requirements. CHEM-1000 Principles of Chemistry–Fa 4 hours For non-science majors, an introduction to atomic structure, ionic and covalent bonding, stoichiometry, kinetic theory, solutions and equilibria, nuclear chemistry, nomenclature, structure, and reactions of organic compounds. Four lectures and one two-hour laboratory per week. (Fee: $50) CHEM-1050 Chemistry for Engineers–Fa, Sp 3.5 hours Fundamental concepts of chemistry are developed with applications of chemistry to engineering disciplines. Students learn measurement, number handling, the Periodic Table, descriptive properties of atoms, elements, molecules, and ions, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, chemical bonding, equilibrium, thermodynamics, gas laws, and the nature of solids and liquids. Three lectures per week, and one bi-weekly two-hour laboratory. (Fee: $50) Chemistry: Major (CHEM) CHEM-1110 General Chemistry I–Fa 4 hours Fundamental concepts of physical, inorganic, and analytical chemistry are developed. Students are introduced to the physical chemistry concepts of atomic theory, chemical bonding, molecular structure, gas laws, states of matter, and thermochemistry. Inorganic concepts of reaction types and stoichiometry are included. Lab stresses analytical techniques including quantitation, separation, titration, and statistical analysis of data. Three lectures and one three-hour lab per week. (Fee: $100) CHEM-1120 General Chemistry II–Sp 4 hours A continuation of General Chemistry I, including the physical chemistry concepts of intermolecular forces, properties of solutions, kinetics, equilibrium, and Gibbs free energy. Inorganic topics include acids and bases, oxidation-reduction reactions, solid-state structures, metal complexes, and nuclear chemistry. Lab exercises stress quantitative analytical techniques, application of visible light spectroscopy, and statistical analysis of data. Three lectures and one three-hour lab per week. Prerequisite: CHEM1110 General Chemistry I. (Fee: $100) CHEM-2210 Analytical Chemistry I–Fa 3 hours A study of the fundamental concepts and skills of analytical chemistry including measurement, statistical treatment of data, equilibrium constant calculations, solubility equilibria, acid-base equilibria, EDTA-complexation equilibria, volumetric analysis, and radiochemical analysis. The laboratory sessions focus on volumetric methods such as precipitation titrations, acid-base titrations, complexation titrations, and redox titrations where accurate measurement of volume is essential. Two lectures and one three-hour laboratory per week. Prerequisite: CHEM-1120 General Chemistry II. (Fee: $150) 2023–24 Undergraduate Academic Catalog Page 233 Course Descriptions BUS-3910 – CHEM-2210
