This is a first course in concepts of systems analysis and design.  It defines and describes the five traditional phases of the systems development life cycle and uses a case study approach to illustrate concepts.  Recent technological impacts of the Internet and World Wide Web are integrated into subject matter to help students understand what computers can do in the modern world and the many considerations involved in exploiting their potential successfully.

This course is designed to acquaint first-year students with skills and habits needed to succeed in college and beyond.  This course will incorporate topics that include the benefit of a college education, money managing, choosing a major, study methods, technology, information competency, academic planning, and health and wellness

This course will examine the Judeo-Christian traditions, cultures and history.  It is designed to offer introductory knowledge and understanding of Old and New Testament writings of the aforementioned religious heritage.  It is also intended to enable students to relate the content to everyday life, relationships, and contemporary society through selected readings from Biblical and supplementary Judeo-Christian literature. 

The undergraduate psychology practicum experience provides the opportunity to integrate and apply classroom concepts with actual field experiences while developing beginning competency skills.  Students function under the direct supervision and guidance of mental health professionals already operating in the field.  A minimum of 160 hours of field experience is required to receive six credits. The 160 hours of practicum experience provides the student with the opportunity to become familiar with the mission, philosophy, goals, objectives, organizational structure, and administrative guidelines of the organization and to participate to a limited extent in the organization’s day-to-day operation.  Students should become familiar with the policies and procedures of the organization. 


Topics will be chosen from the History of Mathematics, which starts when number systems were invented and continues to this day. For example, number theory and geometry have been studied thousands of years. The contributions from great mathematicians such as Archimedes, Newton, Leibnitz, Euler, and Gauss will be discussed.

This module introduces adult learners to various management planning models and techniques and applies these to actual business cases. It stresses the concepts of strategic planning and strategic management. (A "CLIMB" component)

International Finance is an area of financial economics that deals with monetary interactions between two or more countries, concerning itself with topics such as currency exchange rates, international monetary systems, foreign direct investment, and issues of international financial management including political risk and foreign exchange risk inherent in managing multinational corporations.  This course will explore these concepts in depth using a macroeconomic concept, examining economies as a whole rather than individual markets.

Academic Policies


Academic Dishonesty- Honesty, trust, and personal responsibility are fundamental attributes of the college community; therefore, academic dishonesty will not be tolerated in this class.

Cheating and plagiarism are not tolerated with great concern and will watch carefully for them.

Any instance of alleged or suspected academic dishonesty will be processed through the appropriate channels.

Examples of academic dishonesty include but are not limited to cheating on an exam or written assignment, plagiarism, submitting your previously presented academic work for an assignment in this class, allowing someone else to submit your work as his/hers, and knowingly destroying or altering another student’s work.

Plagiarism is a serious crime and will result in an automatic F in the course. Plagiarism includes:

Submitting an assignment purporting to be the student’s original work which has been wholly or partly created by another person;

Presenting as one’s own the work, ideas, representations, or words of another person without customary and proper acknowledgment of sources

Submitting as newly executed work, without faculty member’s prior knowledge and consent, one’s own work which has been previously presented for another class at EWC or elsewhere;

Knowingly permitting one’s work to be submitted by another person as if it were the submitter’s original work.

Many factors that put a student at risk for cheating can be prevented. EWC’s Counseling Center offers services to help you with any deficiencies.

You are always welcome to stop by after class or come to my office for a further explanations of anything pertaining to this course.


Attendance: (Attend class regularly, punctual, and stay for the entire class): Attendance Policy

(Effective Fall 2016-Campus Wide)

Students must be present for 80% of the scheduled course time in order to receive credit for a course. Please note that students who miss more than six (6) class periods will not receive credit for the course and will be given an FN grade (Failure for Non-Attendance). We will no longer provide excused absences to ensure compliance to this policy. Students with extenuating circumstances may appeal to the Office of Academic Affairs and may be granted an administrative withdrawal from their respective course (s) and/or receive a W, WP, or WF depending on their grade and time period in the semester at which they fail to meet the 66% attendance rule. Students representing the college with sufficient documentation from the Athletic Department, Choir, Band, and other auxiliary organizations will receive an excuse for “Official College Business.”

Note: Students conducting “Official College Business” are required to attend all classes unless the Office of Academic Affairs and the Instructor of Record have been given prior notice by the activity director that the student will be absent. Under no circumstances will students be excused from class for practice.

Late Arrival Policy

It is important that students arrive to class on time.

* Because we cannot always plan for unforeseen circumstances, students will be allowed a grace period of 5 minutes only.

* Beyond 5 minutes up to 15 minutes late, students will be marked tardy. The accumulation of 3 tardies will be the equivalent of 1 absence.

* Students who are late beyond 15 minutes, for any reason, will be marked absent for the day.

* Remember: Students must attend at least 80% of class sessions

You are expected to attend every class session; you are expected to be on time; and, you are expected to stay for the entire class period. In addition, you should be fully prepared for every class meeting, which means thoughtfully reading/completing your assignment(s) and being ready to actively participate in discussions.

Active participation means not only participating in completing an in-class activity, but also commenting on the assigned readings, discussing and responding to the questions posed by the professor, asking significant content questions, sharing ideas, and listening to understand the information presented by others.


Late Work- Provide the late work policy for the course. There is no institution-wide late work policy; each instructor has the right to establish a specific late work policy best suited to a given course. Late work policy for this course is that all work must be submitted on time to receive full credit. No late work will be accepted one week (7-days) after the due date unless prior approval has been granted in advance. Late work may be penalized. Remember that late work can never be accepted after the end of the term unless there are extenuating circumstances (i.e. Illness or death).


Absences Caused by Short-term Suspensions- the instructor has the right to decide if students can make-up work due to or during a short term suspension. Absences that result from short-term suspensions due to violations of the principles outlined in the Student Life Agreement will be treated as unexcused absences, and significant academic penalties may apply as a result of such unexcused absences.   


Class Expectations - the College seeks to provide an environment where discussions and expressions of all views relevant to the subject are recognized and necessary to the educational process. In this course you will participate in several “Mighty Write” assignments relating to current events and effective teacher quality. By doing so, you will address our institution’s mission to improve the writing of all students on our campus in every department.


Students do not have the right to interfere with the instructor’s right to teach or the other students’ rights to learn. A student demonstrating inappropriate behavior during class time will be asked to leave the class. The student’s behavior will be discussed with the instructor following the class or prior to the next class session.

Cell phones are not needed in class as a rule. However, if they are you will receive prior notice. Leave them in a secured place, and or turned off/silent during class time. They are distracting to the instructor and for other students who are here to learn.


Disability Accommodations- If a student has a disability that qualifies under the Americans Disability Act (ADA) and requires accommodations; he/she should contact the Counseling Center for information on appropriate policies and procedures. Disabilities covered by ADA may include learning, psychiatric, physical disabilities, or chronic health disorders. Students can contact the Counseling Center staff if they are not certain whether a medical condition/disability qualifies at Edward Water College’s Counseling Center, 1658 Kings Road, Jacksonville Florida, 32209. Telephone: 904.470.8990 or8231; Fax 904.470.8036. Individuals with hearing impairments can contact our office using the Florida Relay Service at 1-800-955-8771 (TTY) or email Ragan Summers at


Dress Code- Students must dress in a manner that will not constitute a disruption or a safety hazard or exhibit impropriety in the College:


Student dress and grooming shall be neat and clean.

Shoes/sneakers shall be worn. Bedroom slippers should not be worn outside of the dormitories.

Students should refrain from wearing clothing that promotes alcohol, cigarettes, sexual impressions, violence, drugs and profanity.

Revealing clothing should not be worn. The wearing of overly tight, distracting see through or mesh garments, extreme styles or inappropriate apparel is not permitted.

Male students shall not wear hats, caps, and/or head attire inside any of the campus buildings.

Pants or skirts must be pulled up to the waist and worn at the waist at all times.

Description of Tentative Course Requirements:


You will develop an awareness of social, multicultural and international issues as they connect to Social Science. Research shows that meaningful learning results when students are empowered to self-direct their learning. When students are engaged in critical thinking via stimulating and supporting activities, then faculty assist students in becoming self-directed learners and critical thinkers.




This is a Professional Education Course required for your degree in education. Because you are working toward joining a field in which you are expected to behave professionally, you need to begin fostering professionalism in your attitudes, work ethic, and conduct now. I expect you to be at every class on time, ready to engage in discussion, having read all of the assigned material, and having completed your assignments before class begin. In his speech to the teamsters (July 2009), President Barack Obama stated, “The job of a teacher is too important to accept less than the best.” Becoming the best teacher you can begins as a teacher candidate—now. The expectation is that you will focus on the requirements of this course, so that your future students will benefit from your expertise.

Welcome to your Introduction to Elementary Education.  

This is a lively class where we discuss all things current and past that affects education and learning.  Each of you will have a say in this class.  So get ready!

An introduction to macroeconomics, which deals with the theories of employment, inflation, money, backing, economic growth and development, the public sector, and how these are influenced by government fiscal and monetary policies.

This course surveys the pre-modern era of the African Diaspora from the early Bantu migration to the modern era or the Slave trade.  This course will explore traditional East, West, and Central African culture in addition to the African Age of Exploration.  Particular focus will be granted to the African presence and contributions to Asia, the Americas, and Europe.

Prerequisite: MAT 105

This course attempts to respond to the changing needs of business and management by using a practical approach to statistical analysis. While studying descriptive and inferential concepts, the student will apply these to business, management, and industry in general, government and related areas.

Prerequisite:  Senior year only

A study of how all functions of a business entity are correlated and integrated. Case study shows how policy and strategy is set.

Quantitative techniques and models are presented. Decisions under uncertainty, model building and decision-making criteria will prepare the student for future managerial decisions. Linear programming, decision trees, probabilities, guessing, and such theories are studied.

This capstone course for seniors (and advanced juniors with permission of instructor) will survey the major influences and intellectual movements that have shaped the field of Psychology.  This is a systematic review of psychology’s epistemological development progressing from its historical roots in the Aristotelean traditions of empiricism to the 21st century postmodern present.

The undergraduate psychology practicum experience provides the opportunity to integrate and apply classroom concepts with actual field experiences while developing beginning competency skills.  Students function under the direct supervision and guidance of mental health professionals already operating in the field.  A minimum of 160 hours of field experience is required to receive six credits. The 160 hours of practicum experience provides the student with the opportunity to become familiar with the mission, philosophy, goals, objectives, organizational structure, and administrative guidelines of the organization and to participate to a limited extent in the organization’s day-to-day operation.  Students should become familiar with the policies and procedures of the organization. 


This course explores concepts and principles governing the psychometric assessment of individual differences. It presents current practices in the design, construction, administration, scoring and interpretation of test data. This includes diagnostic, achievement, and aptitude tests -- both standardized and otherwise. Students will critically examine issues of reliability and validity, ethical practices in testing, and issues of bias versus cultural fair interpretation of test data for diverse populations
