Spring 2019 Course List
Generally speaking each course at Marlboro College requires a minimum number of contact hours with teaching faculty based on the credits to be earned. Usually 50 minutes or more of weekly contact time per credit earned is required. Contact time is provided through formal in-class instruction as well as other instructional activities facilitated by the teaching faculty member.
Book lists for courses are posted on the course list prior to the first week of each semester, when course registration takes place, in fulfillment of the provisions of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008. Lists are subject to change at any time. Books required for courses at Marlboro are available at the College Bookstore.
Courses marked with hearing are Writing Seminar Courses.
Courses marked with public meet Marlboro's Global Perspective criteria.
This course will survey the history of Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Brunei, and the Philippines) from the earliest written records to the present. During the first half of the semester, we will consider Indian and Chinese influences on the region; local forms of kingship, social organization, and religious expression; and the onset of European colonialism. In the second half, we will turn our attention to nationalist movements, the Japanese occupation during WWII, and political independence in the post-war period. Reading will include a comprehensive textbook, historical monographs, a memoir, and a novel. Students will conclude the semester with research papers on subjects of their own choosing.
