Courses I am Currently Teaching

Note that 200-level courses are upper-division, undergraduate courses; 300-level courses are comprised of both undergraduates and graduates; and 400-level courses are for graduate students only. As of Fall 2015, our courses no longer use, the '.15' extension to denote a course in Spanish, '.11' extension to denotes a course in English, and .02 to denote a course in Portuguese; the language of instruction is now listed in the title (e.g. SPA = Spanish). Finally, see my curriculum vitae, located on the home​ page, for courses taught at all previous teaching engagements.​
