GLOS 1600-01: Southeast Asian Art and Culture
3 Credits (MnTC 6, 8)
Online, Fall 2014
Many people from Minnesota probably know someone from Vietnam, Laos, Philippines, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, or some other countries in Southeast Asia. Southeast Asia is a very vibrant region, “crossroads of the world” as scholars often refer to it. This course introduces students to this fascinating region, home to many ethnic groups rich in cultural and religious diversity. Students will learn about various cultures including, for example, Vietnamese, Hmong, Cambodian, Indonesian, Filipino, and Malaysian. To obtain a good understanding of its history, students will examine a variety of art forms from different historical periods and religious influences, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Islam, and Animism (indigenous belief systems). Through readings, visuals and discussions, students will gain some insight into the fundamental values, beliefs, and practices of the peoples of this region, as well as their contributions to and interactions with other Asian and Western regions.
Note: For this course, students only need to purchase one paperback entitled Southeast Asia: Crossroads of the World by Clark D. Neher. They will receive most course materials for free on D2L and through web links.

MCTC DECA Students Crowned U.S. Champions in Washington DC!
DECA, a student led business club here at MCTC open to all majors, just came back from International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Washington DC as U.S. champions in the Entrepreneurship Challenge competition snagging $1000 in prize money along with significant bragging rights. The MCTC team came in 2nd place, losing only to a team from Canada, out of 41 teams from mostly 4-year colleges from all around the country. The team also advanced to the second round of the Project Management event.
The competitions are intense. In some competitions, participants are given only 30 minutes to prepare and present a solution to a real world problem.

less expensive. Something else is I’m often incredibly absolve to contact the web based businesses whenever I need.
In other events, they might have 24-48 hours. All participants pulled all-nighters ironing out details in their proposals at 4:00AM. The Team’s advisor, Jason L. Cussler, believes in a hands-off approach. “DECA is supposed to be a student-driven organization. To be honest, I don’t want to mess things up. This group had a relentless work ethic, business savvy, and a very real competitive spirit. They wanted to win!”
Please congratulate Immanuel Jones, Monique Stewart and Elliot Schimming for their brilliant performances.
The DECA Team is actively recruiting new members now for this fall. Please contact Jason L. Cussler (email@example.com) and/or Elliot Schimming (firstname.lastname@example.org).
