Current Pop-Up Course

Spring 2021

Learn about COVID-19!

The Office of Academic Innovation is proud to present pop-up courses, which are unique courses designed to keep students up to date on the latest innovations and happenings across academic disciplines.

Our second pop-up course is called “COVID-19: Biological, Psychological and Philosophical Perspectives” (CPU 2990) and will focus on COVID-19 from three diverse disciplinary perspectives: Biological, Psychological, and Philosophical.

This 3-unit course will be offered in Spring 2021. It will be taught by a team of experts from across campus: Dr. Andrew Steele, Department of Biological Sciences; Dr. Robert Blumenfeld, Department of Psychology; and Dr. Dale Turner, Department of Philosophy.

Each section of CPU 2990 will be taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10 to 11:15 am. Students will register on BroncoDirect for one of the three sections with a specific professor. However, each professor will rotate between sections every five weeks, so students can learn about COVID-19 from the different perspectives. 

See below for registration details. Please email if you have any questions.
